Cassini, our spacecraft orbiting Saturn, was launched in '97, fell into Saturn's orbit in '04, and has been taking ridiculously amazing photographs of Saturn, its moons, and rings ever since.  
A movie is being made by Stephen Van Vuuren, for IMAX, called Outside In. It's essentially a high definition montage of the photographs taken by Cassini in sequential order, providing a visual journey through the eyes of our orbiter.
Here's a sample:
