The most recent spacecraft telemetry was acquired Wednesday, October 11,
from the Goldstone tracking stations. The Cassini spacecraft is in an
excellent state of health and is operating normally. Information on the
present position and speed of the Cassini spacecraft may be found on the
"Present Position" web page located at

Thursday, October 5 (DOY 278):

An Integrated Test Laboratory (ITL) test for the Titan 20 flyby sequence was
completed today. The test was designed to validate a sequence to obtain
accelerometer data during the T20 flyby. A modification to the telemetry
schedule was needed to collect the data every 8 seconds. T20 will occur
during the execution of S25.

A new image of Saturn demonstrates a technique that creates a 'Chinese
lantern' effect, showing Saturn's deep clouds silhouetted against the
planet's warm, glowing interior. Seen this way, Saturn's interior shows
surprising activity underneath the overlying haze, with a great variety of
cloud shapes and sizes. For more information go to:
