|Target Name: Moon, Is a satellite of: Earth, Mission: Cassini, Spacecraft: Cassini Orbiter, Instrument: Imaging Science, Subsystem - Narrow Angle, Product Size: 1084 samples x 1025 lines, Produced By: CICLOPS / University of Arizona, Addition Date: 1999-09-10.|
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.
