Default Cassini's swan song: 13-year Saturn mission ends Friday

Prepare to say goodbye to Cassini.

In the early morning hours of September 15, NASA's 13-year mission exploring Saturn and its moons will come to an end as the spacecraft deliberately dives into Saturn's atmosphere and plunges itself into the planet.

I've been following this mission since it was launched. I'll be sad to see the reports come to an end. I understand why they're doing this, and I'm sure they'll get some great information about the atmosphere during it's final plunge, and I can't wait to see what that will reveal.

Still.....

Great shots, including the one with a moon in the middle of the photo.
