NASA put together more than 1,400 images people sent in of themselves waving at Saturn in a collage of “Earth waving at Saturn.” People from more than 40 countries and 30 U.S. states participated in the campaign to mark July 19, the day the Cassini spacecraft turned back toward Earth from its mission to Saturn.

Cassini took a picture of Earth from its location in the Saturn system along with other images it is collecting of the region. NASA expects the task of putting together the images from Saturn into a color mosaic of the system will take at least several more weeks.
