Cassini is set to be the first spacecraft to make its close approach to the outermost rings of Saturn.
The spacecraft’s first encounter will take place on Friday, Nov. 25, and will be the third and final time Cassini will pass close to the icy moon Enceladus.
The closest approach to Saturn has taken place when Cassini was only 13 million miles (22 million kilometers) from Saturn in January 2016.
The latest flyby marks a new milestone for Cassini, which is expected to capture a wide variety of images and videos of Saturn’s rings, including two previously unseen rings.
Cassini also will get close to its main moon, Titan, and the planet’s two largest moons, Titan and Encelantis.
Cassi will also get close for the first time to Saturn’s moons Encelia and Eros.
The flyby is also a key milestone for NASA’s Cassina mission, which aims to use the spacecraft to help understand Saturn’s formation.
