The Cassini probe's first results from inside Saturn's rings make scientists question the conventional wisdom on how planets form magnetic fields. As NASA's Cassini spacecraft makes its unprecedented series of weekly dives between Saturn and its rings,…
Cassini mission scientists found evidence that Saturn's icy, ocean-bearing moon Enceladus may have tipped over in the distant past. Its spin axis, the line through the north and south poles, has reoriented, possibly due to a collision with a smaller body such as…
While Hubble Space Telescope, orbiting around Earth, was able to observe the Saturn's northern auroras in ultraviolet wavelengths, Cassini spacecraft, orbiting around Saturn, got complementary close-up views in infrared, visible-light and ultraviolet
Cassini spacecraft has obtained the highest-resolution movie yet of a unique six-sided jet stream, known as the hexagon, around Saturn's north pole.
This is the first hexagon movie of its kind, using color filters, and the first to show a complete view of
Saturn is well-placed for viewing this month, revealing its northern hemisphere and a ring tilt open to 17 degrees. And July is a great month to spot Saturn's third-largest moon Iapetus.
On July 15 and 16 you'll be able to spot our moon near
The NASA probe will capture imagery of of the ringed planet with Earth in its backdrop on July 19th, 2013. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has created a public out reach program called 'Wave At Saturn' for the event and will compile a mosaic. Read more
NASA`s Cassini probe will take a photo of our planet on July 19, 2013, where Earth will appear as a tiny blue dot between Saturn`s rings. Earth will be only about a pixel in size from Cassini's vantage point 1.44 billion kilometers (898 million miles)
According to the two new models, Saturn`s moon Titan may be affected by some harsh weather as it heads into its spring and summer seasons. Experts are of the opinion that as the seasons change in Titan's northern hemisphere, hurricanes could begin to churn and
The international Cassini spacecraft has found a behemoth hurricane swirling around Saturn’s north pole, surrounded by the curious rotating hexagonal band of clouds. This storm has been churning since at least 2006.
The images Cassini took on November 27,
The international Cassini spacecraft took amazing images of Venus shining through Saturn’s rings. Venus and Saturn are about 1,321,200,000 km (820,955,619 miles or 8.83 astronomical units) apart on average. Venus is brighter in Saturn’s skies than Earth is,
