Closest Titan Flyby Yet
April 20, 2005
Saturn's smoggy moon Titan was the target of a flyby by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on Saturday, April 16. The spacecraft came within 1,025 kilometers (637 miles) of the moon's surface. This was Cassini's sixth flyby of Titan, but much of the moon remains for the spacecraft to explore.
