Just down on the ground this morning and posted to the CICLOPS website: New raw (unprocessed) images from Cassini's recent non-targeted flyby of my favorite moon, icy Enceladus.
Also, stay tuned for several `targeted' flybys of Enceladus coming up in the next several months. We have three encounters between October 1 and November 6 this year, with closest approach distances ranging from 99 to 1231 kilometers, and another three between March 27 and May 2 of 2012, all with closest approaches about 75 kilometers. Should be grand.
