Cassini's mission planners created this animation to showcase the mission's final orbits, known as the Grand Finale. The animation focuses on the spacecraft's final two flybys of Titan: one that caused Cassini to leap over the rings and begin diving between them and the planet, and the other, which sent the spacecraft diving into Saturn's atmosphere.
