Weekly Saturn Show

Cassini Goes Weekly As Saturn Approaches


Cassini will be sending back images each week as it nears Saturn. It will enter the Saturn system on May 18th. Check out the story for awesome desktops of this image, and compare it to the image I posted in December.

In the coming months, imaging highlights will include near daily, multi-wavelength imaging of Saturn and its rings; imaging of Titan beginning in April; Titan movie sequences starting in late May, when the resolution exceeds that obtainable from Earth; and a flyby of Saturn’s distant moon, Phoebe, in June, at a spacecraft altitude of 2,000 kilometers (1,243 miles).

Totally cool.
