Raw Images...of the day

More raw images hot of the presses:
  • Iapetus...one day later. Iapetus rotates so slowly (once every 79 days), that we are just now reaching the 1 day point since the New Year's Eve flyby by Cassini that gaves us our best view ever of this oddball (well, it is so far from being a spherical, can it really be called an odd "ball"?). This is just about the saw area that was lit during that encounter. If you squint really hard, you can just barely make out the equatorial ridge.
  • Tiny Mimas
  • Rhea, behind the rings
