artist concept of Titan flyby
On May 28, the Cassini spacecraft successfully completed a flyby of Saturn's moon Titan, the last flyby of the original four-year tour, but Cassini's exploration of Saturn will continue for two more years. This flyby included imagery of Xanadu and inbound altimetry over the area imaged during the previous flyby.

The extended mission, named the "Saturn Equinox Mission," starts with Cassini's next flyby in July, a two-year odyssey with 26 Titan flybys, 7 Enceladus encounters, and one flyby each of the icy moons Dione, Rhea and Helene.
