Of Occultations and Animations

In the last few posts I’d created some animations out of raw Cassini images sequences. In my most recent post I mentioned wanting to see more animations from the folks that operate Cassini, if only for the “gee whiz” factor. It would seem the folks at JPL and the Space Science Institute have answered the call — or it’s just timely coincidence.

A News Release dated yesterday on the Cassini project website contains a handful of breathtaking animations of some of Saturn’s moons. I’d like to think my post had something to do with it, but either way I’m glad to see it. It’s really good stuff.

I leave you with this striking image of Enceladus occulting Titan.
