Photomontage after an assemblage of images, taken by the Voyager 1.

NASA.

Notes:

This montage of images of the Saturnian system was prepared from an assemblage of images taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft during its passage near Saturn in November 1980. This artist‘s point of view shows Dione in the foreground, Saturn rising behind it, Tethys and Mimas vanishing into the distance on the right, Enceladus and Rhea outside of Saturn rings on the left and Titan in its distant orbit above. The Voyager project is managed for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. The Voyager 1 spacecraft is one of the earliest explorers of the outer solar system, still active today although it has reached heliopause. The launch took place as part of NASA‘s Voyager Program on September 5, 1977 from Cape Canaveral aboard a Titan IIIE rocket, a few days after its sister probe Voyager 2, in an orbit that would have allowed it to reach Jupiter. The main purpose of the mission was to fly over the two giant planets Jupiter and Saturn, and in particular the satellite Titan, to study their magnetic fields, their rings and photograph their respective satellites. After the overflight of Saturn in 1980, the probe‘s mission was extended, thus continuing to collect data on the outer regions of the solar system. In August 2012, Voyager 1 passed the heliopause to become the first man-made object to exit interstellar space. As of September 11, 2020, the spacecraft has been operating and reporting data for 43 years and is more than 150 AU (22 billion and 500 million km) from the Sun, making it the furthest artificial object from Earth. It is expected to continue operating until 2025, when the RTGs will stop providing enough electricity.
