Hi,

You mean you don't see the Saturn one?? The key of seeing this type of embedded image is to focus behind the image. One way of doing that easily is to go very close to the image until the image is totally blur (can't focus)... then slowly move away from the image... don't refocus with your eye as you move away. When the distance is correct, you'll see the image.

Have a nice day.

Its easier if you print out the picture on a piece of paper so that you can put it right up to your nose and follow weixing's suggestion. Really 3D - quite neat to be able to see it...
