THIS IS THE LAST PHOTO OF SATURN TAKEN BY CASSINI AFTER 13 YEARS IN ORBIT


On September 15, 2017, NASA's Cassini spacecraft plunged into Saturn's atmosphere and caught fire, completing its mission after 13 years in orbit. Two days earlier, Cassini used his wide-angle cameras and captured this beautiful final photo of the planet he studied for more than a decade.

NASA wrote that Cassini spent two hours recording a total of 80 photos with its wide-angle Saturn lenses. 42 of these 80 photos, using red / green / blue spectra filters, were combined as a mosaic to create the final natural-color photo.
