Animation of the Voyager 1 spacecraft departing Saturn. Voyager 1 was launched on 5th September 1977, and arrived at Saturn in early November 1980, making its closest approach on November 12th. It sent the first high resolution images of the planet, after Pioneer 11's low resolution pass the previous year. It also visited Saturn's largest moon Titan. Voyager 1 is still in operation, and is the most distant artificial object from Earth as of 2021.
