Hey, I'm on APOD today!

Emily Lakdawalla • April 20, 2010

A big thanks to Bob Nemiroff, editor of NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day website, for picking my composition of a set of Cassini photos of Dione and Titan for today's offering.

A calming Titan

Emily Lakdawalla • April 19, 2010

Usually I like Mondays, but today I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. When I get overwhelmed, I look at pictures from Cassini.

Dione and Titan

Emily Lakdawalla • April 12, 2010

It's axiomatic that as soon as I post about pretty Cassini pictures, another set of pretty photos will appear on the raw images website.

A feast of pretty pictures from Cassini

Emily Lakdawalla • April 12, 2010

Cassini has it almost too easy. Point at anything in the Saturn system and you're guaranteed of a shot that looks, at least, pretty.

A busy day for Cassini: Dione plus bonus Enceladus and Janus

Emily Lakdawalla • April 08, 2010

The Cassini Saturn orbiter just completed its second very close flyby of Saturn's mid-sized iceball moon Dione, and the images from that encounter have been streaming onto the Cassini raw images website this morning.

Pretty picture: Rhea, rings, and two little moons

Here's a lovely picture whose components came down from Cassini a few days ago.

Mimas' cold region: another new mystery for Cassini to explore

Emily Lakdawalla • March 29, 2010

This new map of Saturn's moon Mimas -- representing data captured by the CIRS thermal infrared spectrometer during Cassini's February 13, 2010 flyby -- is just baffling.

A trio of pretty Cassini pics

Emily Lakdawalla • March 19, 2010

It's been a little while since I posted any Cassini pictures just because they were pretty, so here's a few recent ones, produced by amateurs from the images available on the Cassini raw images website.

Titan: Callisto with weather

Emily Lakdawalla • March 16, 2010 • 2

It's the second time I've posted with this provocative title. This time, it's in response to a new paper published last week in Science.

Helene has two faces

Emily Lakdawalla • March 11, 2010

Yes, it's yet another post on Helene! I keep on finding new stuff to post. This time it is a really cool montage assembled by Ian Regan.
