This is plain silly. You are trying to compare a bowl
of grapes with a violin. With an image you can see it,
understand it and move on in a fraction of a second.
If you really want you can spend time sitting and
gazing at an image, you can do this, but only a few
images in the history of people are actually worth the
investment of the time. Your nebula pictures are
gimmicks, quick and easy, and they may be beautiful,
but that is beside the point. To understand, or at
least appreciate, the Saturn recordings, you need to
spend the time first, and then sort out the importance
of the different elements you hear.

Confusing time-based events and a single frozen in
time event is a bit of a problem you might want to get
checked out. Good luck.
