Cassini Aims High in Upcoming Titan Flyby

Cassini's next close flyby of Titan will be on Saturday, Sept. 23. This will be one of Cassini's closest flybys yet of Titan, at just 960 kilometers (600 miles) above the surface. Scientists will use the observations to study the composition at the very highest levels of Titan's atmosphere.
