New Mimas Image: Herschel: Dead-On

CICLOPS has released a newly processed view of Mimas taken last month shortly after the Huygens landing on Titan. This view shows Herschel (named after the discoverer of Mimas) straddling the sunset terminator, with the central peak just poking up into view. A very dramatic view of Mimas. Cassini's next close pass of Mimas will take place on April 15.
