The Saturn Fly-By

Jamie noted that today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day is actually a Video of Saturn built by compiling actual photographs taken by Cassini in 2004. Unlike most videos of this type, this isn’t actually 3D animation, these are the actual photos (albeit “digitally tweaked, cropped”). Great views of the planet, as well as Titan, Mimas and Enceladus.
