Like any extended family, the Cassini mission enjoys holiday traditions - such as transforming our homepage into a spooky landscape for Halloween.

This year – the mission’s last Halloween – we offer a tongue-in-cheek preview of Cassini’s Grand Finale, a series of 22 spectacular dives between Saturn’s cloud tops and innermost rings ending in September 2017 with a plunge into the planet.

Below, in chronological order, is all of Cassini’s Halloween fun artwork:
