Original Caption Released with Image: This narrow angle image taken by Cassini's camera system of the Moon is one of the best of a sequence of narrow angle frames taken as the spacecraft passed by the Moon on the way to its closest approach with Earth on August 17, 1999.

The 80 millisecond exposure was taken through a spectral filter centered at 0.33 microns; the filter bandpass was 85 Angstroms wide. The spatial scale of the image is about 1.4 miles per pixel (about 2.3 kilometers). The imaging data were processed and released by the Cassini Imaging Central Laboratory for Operations (CICLOPS) at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, Tucson, AZ.

Hey there,

My name is Karen Shacham and I work with CNN Pipeline in Atlanta.

I thought you might be interested to know that the crew of the next shuttle mission will arrive at the Kennedy Space Center today, LIVE at 5:45PM.

CNN Pipeline is an online, commercial-free multiple live news feed. It showcases four simultaneous news feeds from around the world and an On Demand function that allows you to select from a variety of news stories.

If you're interested, go to http://www.cnn.com and click on the Pipeline link to watch it LIVE and get a two week free trial.
