First set of images from Mimas Rev12 Encounter

Raw Images from the Mimas Encounter are starting to come down. These early images are from 840,000 km out so these are pretty low resolution, but cover the terrain we will be seeing at much higher resolution one Mimas day later. The large crater at lower left is a 70-km wide crater named Arthur (named after the legendary King Arthur). The smaller crater at about 3 o'clock is named Morgan (~43 km wide).

More images should come down tomorrow and Wednesday.

Also, don't forget to check out this view of Tethys with Odysseus edge-on :=O In case you couldn't tell from this post, the JPL Raw images page has been updated!

UPDATE: 08/02/2005 09:10am: Just a note that images will not start showing up till later this evening PDT.
