CICLOPS: Cassini Imaging Central Laboratory for OPerationS

AMNH Cassini Images Exhibit

Visitors to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City will behold the wonders of Saturn in an exhibition of images from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.

Entitled “Saturn: Images from the Cassini-Huygens Mission,” the exhibit features more than 50 outstanding vistas witnessed by Cassini's high resolution cameras in its first four years touring Saturn, its breathtaking rings and its entourage of icy moons. There are also images taken by the Huygens probe of the surface of Titan during its historic landfall on that moon on January 14, 2005, and images from Cassini's other remote sensing instruments.

The exhibition runs from April 26, 2008 through March 29, 2009.

Most of the dazzling views from the exhibit are presented below.
