Description
Colour poster of a image of Saturn with a space craft in front, image taken by Voyager space craft. Photos are against a black background with colour horizontal lines.

Photo captioned as:
'Spectacular photographs pf Saturn were retruned by the Voyager1 spacecraft when it encountered the planet in November 1980. Voyagers 1 and 2 were launched in 1977 to explore the outer planets - Jupiter, Saturn, and possibly Uranus - and their major satellites. Both Voyagers encountered Jupiter in 1979, returning thousands of images and a wealkth of other sicentific information about hte Jovian sytem. Voyager 2 reached Saturn in August 1981. In this enhanced-color image, the color difference between Saturn's North and South equatorial Belts may be due to a thick haze layer.'
