In July 2004, after a 7-year journey, a huge robot spacecraft - named Cassini - entered orbit around the ringed planet, Saturn. Since then, Cassini has sent back numerous spectacular images of the planet, its rings and moons, and has made many unexpected discoveries.

In January 2005, a saucer-shaped probe called Huygens, (carried by Cassini to Saturn), parachuted through the clouds of Saturn's largest moon, Titan.

Visit the Planetarium for all the very latest news about the "Ringed Planet", which is now well placed in the night sky.
