Well, not really, but this one’s kinda cool. If you’re wondering why I spend a lot of time on interpolating motion between frames, I present the following Cassini approach animation of Saturn’s big moon Titan. I did take the liberty of colorizing the frames so they’d approximate what you’d actually see.

Titan

Two things to consider if you’re wondering how fast and furious Cassini’s scan platform – the mobile arm which aims its cameras – works:

1. Yes, this animation is a lot jumpier than usual.
2. It’s probably also very close to being the correct speed in real time.

Gives a new meaning to zoom lens, doesn’t it?
