Artist's impression of Cassini-Huygens
Copyright: Davis Seal
Cassini's flyby of Jupiter is quite distant, with a closest approach of about 136 Jupiter radii (or almost 10 million kilometers). This image shows the spacecraft with Jupiter in the far distance. The Huygens probe is the gold-coloured 'dish' attached to the side of the spacecraft.
