NASA: Cassini’s First Fantastic Dive Past Saturn

As NASA’s Cassini spacecraft made its first-ever dive through the gap between Saturn and its rings on April 26, 2017, one of its imaging cameras took a series of rapid-fire images that were used to make this movie sequence. The video begins with a view of the vortex at Saturn’s north pole, then heads past the outer boundary of the planet’s hexagon-shaped jet stream and continues further southward.

A detailed caption describing these video clips, and the unedited clips themselves, are available at https://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA21441. For more information about Cassini’s Grand Finale, visit https://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/grandfinale.
