Cassini Significant Events for 04/21/05 - 04/27/05

The Significant Events report for the last week is now up on the JPL website. Nothing major. The Enceladus-2 flyby in July was shifted down to an altitude of 175 kilometers, as reported here earlier. In addition, the report mentions a Mimas non-targeted encounter at 62,700 kilometers. If this is on the same orbit, this would be a reduction in encounter distance (not sure where it stood before the tweak). If they are refering to the encounter on August 2, then this is an increase in altitude, from the 48,968 kilometers reported earlier.
