Much appreciated Gordan. It's great to see the old walnut moon again, and from a new angle.

Has any new terrain been revealed in this view? Obviously it isn't the best resolution, but just out of curiosity.

Imagine if you could rock Iapetus back and forth in your hand... well, this is the next best thing:

I downloaded all the flyby images this morning with the idea of assembling an animation if I find the time, but I think I'll just enjoy what has been done already.

Great as per usual, Gordan.

I've updated my Iapetus 'bouncy' flyby movie, which is derived from a sequence of 203 frames; tweened to 406:
