Cassini's Enceladus encounter, with bonus Tethys

Emily Lakdawalla • November 02, 2009

Raw images from Cassini's close pass by Enceladus today started appearing on the JPL raw images website, and some less-compressed versions of a few of them showed up on the CICLOPS website.

Fun for Sunday: Titan and Tethys pas de deux

Checking in on Cassini's raw images this weekend, there are several nice shots to play with, including the many frames from which I tossed together this cute animation.

Rhea, Enceladus, Mimas, and Tethys, oh my!

With the last Titan flyby on October 12, Cassini came back to an orbit that's nearly in the equatorial plane, and immediately rewarded us with some fine views of several of the icy moons. Here are a bunch of images of those moons.

Saturn, Tethys, and Titan

I thought that today's image release from the Cassini imaging team was exceptionally pretty.

Showing off Saturn's moons

Emily Lakdawalla • February 19, 2008

There was a press release from the Cassini mission today about a pile of papers (14 of them!) being published in the journal Icarus about Saturn's icy moons. I haven't had time to read more than the overview article yet, but I wanted to come up with a graphic for an overview of Saturn's moons, and I couldn't resist delving into the massive database of Cassini images to produce something new

Many Cassini views of Tethys

Here we bring you fifteen different Cassini views of the same world, a cratered ball of ice called Tethys.

LPSC: Tuesday: Volcanism and tectonism on Saturn's satellites

Anne Verbiscer • March 14, 2007

I received this report on the Tuesday afternoon special session on volcanism and tectonism on Saturn's satellites from Anne Verbiscer, an astronomer from the University of Virginia who I first met at the Division of Planetary Sciences meeting in 2005.

Many, many views of Saturn's moons

Another thing I've been trying to catch up on is the daily imaging activities of Cassini, but that, too, has been tough because Cassini has been taking so dang many pictures!

Pretty Cassini pictures from near the ring plane

It's been a while since I posted some Cassini pictures here just because they were pretty.

Cassini tour page revised

Emily Lakdawalla • July 30, 2005

Cassini mission planner Dave Seal just gave me the latest reference trajectory for Cassini, so I've gone through and updated the flyby altitudes on the Cassini tour page.
