How to watch Cassini’s last moments at Saturn…

Noeleen Lowndes - September 15, 2017

 

Today the 15th September 2017…live images streaming now from Cassini!

Goodbye Cassini….Only 7 hours to go to the end of the incredible mission to Saturn by the Cassini-Huygens Spacecraft!

Well this is it; later this evening (AEST) the amazing Cassini spacecraft will plunge into the surface of the planet Saturn in a fiery ball, which will streak across the sky as it burns up in the gaseous atmosphere of Saturn!

There is no stopping what will happen at approximately 9.55pm tonight and there will be many a tear in the eyes of everyone involved, including me after 15 years of sharing the wonders of Cassini’s discoveries with the community….

Here in Australia (AEST) the Canberra DSN starts tracking Cassini at 1.15pm on DSS43 & DSS35 and by about 9.55pm the spacecraft will have plunged into the planets surface. (Images are being transmitted now!)
