» Astronomy Pic of the Day: The Colors of Saturn from Cassini

What creates Saturn's colors? The featured picture of Saturn only slightly exaggerates what a human would see if hovering close to the giant ringed world. The image was taken in 2005 by the robot Cassini spacecraft that orbited Saturn from 2004 to 2017. Here Saturn's majestic rings appear directly only as a curved line, appearing brown, in part, from its infrared glow. The rings best show their complex structure in the dark shadows they create across the upper part of the planet. The northern hemisphere of Saturn can appear partly blue for the same reason that Earth's skies can appear blue -- molecules in the cloudless portions of both planet's atmospheres are better at scattering blue light than red. When looking deep into Saturn's clouds, however, the natural gold hue of Saturn's clouds becomes dominant. It is not known why southern Saturn does not show the same blue hue -- one hypothesis holds that clouds are higher there. It is also not known why some of Saturn's clouds are colored gold.

You can play Doom Eternal in third person

Doom Eternal is the latest in a line of games that dates back to the grand-daddy of all shooters, the original Doom. And while a lot has changed since 1993, one thing really is eternal - PC gamers love to fiddle with stuff. Thanks to the Cheat Engine and a few dedicated code wranglers, you can now (sort of) play Doom Eternal from a third person perspective.
