From the producer, Nahum Mendez Chazarra:

"I made this video two years ago using all the images available at the time.

"The first images are from July 2004, and the latest ones are, as far as I can remember, from March 2012. The images are not ordered; I just tried to use the length of the sequences to fit the beats in the music.

"It took me a full week to convert, watch all the images and look for sequences from this period and edit the video."

Chazarra, who set the video to the Beethoven’s "Moonlight Sonata," says he 'recorded' the music himself.

"I sequenced the music in a MIDI keyboard and synthesized the sound using 'Reason' [computer software]."

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
