Netherlands-based director Sander van den Berg has taken images from NASA's Cassini orbiter and Voyager spacecraft to create an amazing new video of Saturn entitled "Outer Space."
At first, the compilation of images looks like relatively simple computer-generated imagery of the gas giant. But the images become awe-inspiring when you realize they are all actual photos taken by NASA.
The collection of moving images is set to "That Home," performed by the British jazz and electronic band The Cinematic Orchestra.
45 seconds into the video you can see space debris crashing into Saturn's rings. About a minute into the video, the images take on an almost psychedelic turn, as van den Berg captures images of gas geysers on the solar system's second largest planet.
You can view some of Cassini's raw images of Saturn posted by NASA, and some of the original images of Saturn's ring system taken from Voyager 1.
It was recently announced that Voyager 1 is on the verge of leaving the known solar system and had entered an uncharted void near the edge of the Milky Way known as the heliopause.

In related Saturn news, reported that "strange objects" about a half-mile wide have been colliding with Saturn's F ring, leaving "mini jets" of ice particles in their wake. Those images, like the above video, were captured by Cassini.

"I think the F ring is Saturn's weirdest ring, and these latest Cassini results go to show how the F ring is even more dynamic than we ever thought," Cassini imaging team member Carl Murray said in a statement. "These findings show us that the F ring region is like a bustling zoo of objects from a half mile in size to moons like Prometheus a hundred miles in size, creating a spectacular show."
