The footage in this little film was captured by NASA with the Cassini Imaging Science System. Cassini completed its initial four-year mission to explore Saturn in June 2008. Its extended mission, called the Cassini Equinox Mission, was finished in September 2010. Today, Cassini is seeking to make exciting new discoveries in a mission called the Cassini Solstice Mission.
