NASA: Cassini's First Fantastic Dive Past Saturn





Actual footage of what Cassini observed on its first flight between the planet and Saturn's rings. As NASA said: 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.
