What did this dive mean for us?

On 15th of September 2017, the notorious Nasa rocket brought a dive into the ringed planet’s atmosphere to just burn itself and break down into pieces. The emotional however controlled drop didn’t just give Nasa heaps of significant logical information, but additionally made everyone pay attention to them.

We have just observed some of those pictures, however, the most recent one is a mosaic pinpointing the correct area of the spacecraft’s dive. The exact moment when Cassini made its jump was caught on camera.

Saturn’s night side is shown in this picture, the entry site, too and the point the spacecraft used to go into the ringed planet’s atmosphere. According to NASA, in spite of the fact that the zone is faintly lit by the light of the sun reflected from Saturn’s cold ring particles, the planet had pivoted to the day side when Cassini shut in.

When the pictures were taken, the spacecraft was at a distance of 600,000 km away from Saturn. Spectral filters with the red, green and blue colors were used by NASA to deliver the noteworthy photograph in close-common colors.
