A Farewell to Saturn

After more than 13 years at Saturn and with its fate sealed NASA's Cassini spacecraft bid farewell to the Saturnian system by firing the shutters of its wide-angle camera and capturing this last full mosaic of Saturn and its rings on September 13 2017

The Edge of the Night

Saturn’s moon Dione drifts before the planet’s rings, seen here almost edge on. For all their immense width, the rings are relatively paper-thin, about 30 feet (10 meters) in most places. For its part, Dione is about 698 miles (1,123 kilometers) across. This natural-color view was obtained on Aug. 17, 2015 with Cassini’s wide-angle camera at a distance of approximately 66,200 miles (106,500 kilometers) from Dione. The Cassini spacecraft ended its mission on Sept. 15, 2017.

Voyager 2's departure shot of Saturn

After Voyager 2 zipped by Saturn it looked back to catch a departing portrait of the ringed planet. This view was taken with Voyager's wide-angle camera on August 1981 at UTC.

A Hurricane on Saturn

The spinning vortex of Saturn's north polar storm resembles a deep red rose surrounded by green foliage in this false-color image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The storm's eye is about miles kilometers) across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 mph kph).

In this illustrated problem set from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, students use the mathematical constant pi to solve real-world science and engineering problems related to craters on Mars, a total solar eclipse, a daring orbit about Saturn, and the search for habitable worlds.

Here is Saturn’s fascinating little moon Iapetus, drifting in front of a well-known star in the constellation Orion. The star is called Bellatrix (Gamma Orionis). The Cassini spacecraft – which has been orbiting Saturn since 2004 – captured this event with narrow-angle camera on August 10, 2013. Cassini mission scientists assembled the animation from 19 raw images, stacked in Photoshop.
