Cassini captured this image of Saturn on Feb. 27, 2015 using its CB2 and CL2 filters.
The SOHO spacecraft spotted a small comet (SOHO-2875) within its field-of-view. The first image is a composite image created from a series of SOHO LASCO C2 images captured on Feb. 19, 2015. The odd little horizontal spikes on the comet are saturation spikes caused by the comet’s brightness overwhelming the instrument’s sensor. The second image is a composite image created from a series of SOHO LASCO C3 images captured from Feb. 17-20, 2015. Cosmic rays appear in each composite image.
Updated: The small comet has been named C/2015 D1 (SOHO)

This is a two panel mosaic created from two separate images that Cassini captured of Saturn on Feb. 4, 2015 around 16:30 UTC. Tethys, one of Saturn’s moons, is the bright dot on the upper right.
Below is a model of Cassini’s view on Feb. 4, 2015 around 16:30 UTC.
This is an image of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko with an approximate scaled image of the University of Phoenix Stadium. The image of comet 67P was captured by Rosetta’s navigation camera on Jan. 18, 2015.
The image of the University of Phoenix Stadium was captured via Google Earth, scaled, and placed on comet 67P for a visual comparison.
