Cassini's Fly-by of Helene Animation of Cassini's fly-by of Saturn's moon Helene on June 19, 2011

NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute, Processed and animated by Kevin M. Gill

Processed using raw Cassini data from the PDS archives. Calibrated with img2png, animated using Blender, and adjusted with Adobe Photoshop. Most flickering in the image comes from the use of all available frames, some of which are using different wavelength filters, for a smoother animation.

Original image data dated on or about June 19, 2011.
