New NASA Image Reveals A Strange Bend In Saturn's Rings

NASA just released a new image of everyone's favourite ringed planet, Saturn, captured by the Cassini spacecraft last month. But if you take a closer look, you'll see that two of the planet's rings appear to be warping strangely as they approach the body of the planet.

Fortunately, there's nothing physically messing with Saturn's rings. What you're actually seeing is an optical illusion in space, which is possibly even cooler.
