Cassini Attends Saturn's Magnetic Wake
This weekend, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will be treated to quite a show: the interplay between the magnetic fields of Saturn and Titan, the ringed planet's largest moon.
NASA calls the flyby scheduled for 12/12/09 "prime measuring time" as the Cassini will pass by at a distance of about 3,000 miles.
Cassini previously encountered Titan in 2005.
