Ciclops Looking Ahead
Rev 86 September 21-28 is up. With the 7 day orbit, a few days for ciclops to post, and a day for me to post--it is more like Looking Behind.
For today through the 28th.
"On September 26, two satellite observations are planned. During the first, Cassini will observe several of Saturnís small, inner satellites as part of the ongoing orbit determination campaign. Immediately afterward, Cassini will turn its cameras toward Rhea, as the spacecraft observes that icy moonís southern leading hemisphere from a distance of 463,000 km (288,000 mi). Later in the day, Cassini will image the lit side of the B ring, looking for forming spokes."
"On September 27, Cassini will again observe Saturnís small, inner moons to continue to refine our orbital estimates for these moons. The spacecraft will also again observe the F ring as part of the Imaging Teamís monitoring campaign. Finally, Cassini will observe the faint E ring at high phase angle. This observation will help imaging scientists better understand the size of particles within the ring."
"Rev86 finishes up with another small satellite observation on September 28. Cassini will also observe the leading hemisphere of Mimas from a distance of 1.17 million km (725,000 mi)."
