SUMMARY: We're now just a couple of days away from Cassini's arrival at Saturn, and I wanted to point you towards some resources on the Internet that you can use to get the most out of this incredible event. Cassini will enter Saturn's orbit on July 1 at 0336 UTC (10:36 pm EDT June 30), and make its closest approach to the planet - for the entire mission - about 90 minutes later.

Both NASA and the ESA will have live coverage of the event available on the Internet, so you can switch back and forth between the two feeds. NASA coverage begins at 0230 UTC and goes until 0540. ESA coverage begins at 0135 UTC and runs until 0500, but it won't be continuous, just broadcasting the major events.

I'll be watching. :-)

Considering how neat all the past missions were to Saturn and how much more advanced our technology has become, this should be even better.
