Amazing Composite Video Footage of Saturn Fly-By

This is an amazing video created from composite images captured by the Cassini spacecraft during its mission to Saturn in 2007-2010. There is no animation or computer generated imaging - these are all individual images from the space craft mission stitched together to create a seamless fly-by movie.

Saturn is becoming very well placed in the evening sky in the constellation Virgo this Spring. We had a magnificent view of it last night around 10:30PM during a cold viewing session with guests on our high plateau above Mitzpe Ramon. The A and B rings were prominent with the Cassini division ocassionally visible in the somewhat turbulent air.

Keep on lookin' up!
