The Cassini spacecraft has taken lots of spectacular photos of Saturn over the eight-plus years it’s been orbiting the ringed gas giant. But a new image released just in time for the holidays may be the most beautiful.

“Of all the many glorious images we have received from Saturn, none are more strikingly unusual than those taken from Saturn’s shadow,” the lead of the Cassini imaging team at the Space Science Institute, Carolyn Porco, said of the new image in a written statement released by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The institute is based in Boulder, Colo.
