Arrgh, the influence of Hollywood. Image reminds me of the shadow of the alien mothership moving across the Apollo 11 landing site in Independence Day.

A Kodak moment from Oct 1 looking down on Saturn:



I enhanced the cloud patterns a bit. I can't identify the shadow, judging by planet distance I get something like 19:10 UTC as the time and that matches with neither Enceladus nor Mimas.

It's Tethys. And that view looks even better than the Celestia view :-O

The Rev87 Looking Ahead article is now online. My Celestia rendition of that scene is included.

A nice little movie of Prometheus racing around the planet.
Beautiful view of the F-ring being distorted and a very brief glimpse of Saturn's cloudtops and the distorting effect of it's atmosphere.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but can't come up with anywhere better. Just thought this was very interesting...

Cassini moving images ( YouTube video )

from http://www.outsideinthemovie.com

All beyond me but some of you Imagemages will be interested, I think...

Stu, thanks for posting the link to my site. I'm very slack about posting here as I'm still working hard trying to raise enough funds to work on the film full time. Malmer and Ugordan here have generously donated some of their work to the film as have others online - I could not make the film without people like that.

I will have a new teaser online and will post it here. It has some new images I used in a 2 minute 4k demo that was output to IMAX 15/70 film and screened at Sony IMAX theater in NYC - second largest IMAX screen in the world. Unfortunately, it was a private tradeshow but that's reason I want to make this film - to get space imagery (including the Cassini/Saturn sequence which is the climax of the film) on the screen so people can experience flying through these images at the right sense of scale.

Stephen, your work is amazing! Even though I do not fully understand the detail of your "2.75D" technique, results are quite impressive and I would like to give some aid too... let me know!

Thanks very much. The 2.75D technique is actually a recipe of various techniques to create movement with photographs that holds up at IMAX resolutions (low rez is much, much easier) and does not change the way the photograph looks. One of the key ingredients is very high resolution stills to start with and that's the best way people can help. The larger resolution images I have - especially multiple angles of the sames object, the more I can do.

25 and 26 july 2009 will be very exciting, on those days, the shadows of several of Saturn's satellites will cast their shadow on Titan!

1. Dione: 25 july 2009 13:21 UT
2. Tethys: 25 july 2009 13:40 UT (partial)
3. Enceladus: 25 july 2009 16:37 UT
4. Enceladus (again!): 25 july 2009 20:45 UT
5. Rhea: 26 july 11:57 UT (partial)
6. Tethys: 26 july 2009 17:21 UT

On 3 August, Dione will be in Titan's shadow (full eclipse)

The only problem is that none of these eclipses are total. They are better described as transits rather than eclipses, as each of these moons are smaller than the sun from Titan's perspective.
