New Hyperion Images online

The next set of Hyperion images from near close approach on Friday and Saturday are now available. Cassini flew within 166,000 km of this relatively small satellite capturing spectacular images of the Giant Space Sponge. Many of the images appear saturated though the UV3 filter images appear to still be good. For your viewing convienence, Phil Stooke has a composite of many of the best UV3 filter images on the Unmanned Spaceflight.com forum.

UPDATE: 06/13/2005 04:26 pm: The last set of images are now up. These are higher phase angle images that show the side of Hyperion viewed by Voyager.

I have a question about the oversaturation in the Hyperion images... is there absolutely no way that the IR and visible images can be salvaged?

Those images are way better than I thought they would be.
