If you were to download the entire catalog of photos taken at Saturn to date by Cassini and then animate them like a flipbook, how long would it take to watch them all pass by? The Wall Street Journal's Visual Correspondent Jon Keegan has your answer: nearly four hours.

Enjoy.

Visit the WSJ for a little more about this project, and to see animations of subsets of the images focused on a few of Saturn's moons.

Thanks to Martin Burch for bringing this to my attention!

Is there an equivalent video somewhere for one of the Mars missions? Amazing stuff - feels like an old movie somehow, black & white, 4x3 aspect, really weird!
