​Once a planet of great mystery, now we know more than ever before about its amazing system of rings, moons, and storms thanks to modern robotic space pioneers. While "Saturn" incorporates the best imagery from the Cassini-Huygens missions, it is not a slide show. For example, the photomaps of the moons have been taken and wrapped onto 3-dimensional spheres complete with surface sculpting and height maps so the craters, canyons and mountains will show true surface relief. Audiences can experience an immersive exploration of one of the most amazing and dynamic planetary collections of our solar system. From its bizarre moons with mysterious features, to the millions of icy particles that compose the enigmatic rings, this is the three-dimensional tour of the Saturnian system that goes beyond the CG experience – It is like flying piggyback on the Cassini spacecraft!

Saturn: Jewel of the Heavens will be on screen at the planetarium during the month of November. Take a fresh look at the wonders of the ringed planet. Includes the latest images from the Cassini Probe in orbit around Saturn.
