A timeline for Voyager 1's Saturn encounter, from November 6 to 18, has been published for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The 88-page report details the minute-by-minute activity of Voyager. Closest approach to Saturn is scheduled for 3:45 P.M., November 12; the spacecraft will be 124,200 km above the planet's cloudtops. Approximately 90 experiments, including ultraviolet and infrared observations, plasma-wave observations, radio occultation measurements, and photographs of Saturn and its satellite moons, will be made on the day of closest approach.
