See the real Saturn, up close

See the real Saturn, in a video composed of still images, no computer graphics. Interesting how the rings seem to end where the sun can't hit them. Makes sense, but this seems different from the computer graphics simulations I've seen.
Video Here.

OUTSIDE IN is a ground-breaking giant screen film, animated from hundreds of thousands of still photographs and supported as a non-profit project funded by individual supporters

via OUTSIDE IN | official site of the giant screen IMAX film.

Compare the video at the link above to this computer simulation:
