the "looking ahead" for Rev 163 is now up http://www.ciclops.org/view/7112/Rev163?js=1
in addition to the Enceladus flybys, there will be interesting observations of the Phoebe ring, that IIRC were lost when Cassini safed in late-2010 (or was it 2009?)

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

Please don't jinx it.... ohmy.gif

Yes, there was a Phoebe ring observation during Rev140, which was lost due to the safing event in November 2010.

Some bonus pictures of Dione on the latest rev from ~40,000km - oddly not mentioned on the looking-ahead article. Janus/Enceladus/Titan pictures not down yet - nice revolution this one.

Sorry that was my fault. I didn't notice the extra trigger on that observation...

In this ~gorgeous!~ image of the Enceladus plumes, something is blocking the light on the leftmost "plume". Clouds? Dust? Or is that the sun?

Guess the lowest part of the plume is in the shadow of Enceladus itself, in other words, that particular plume originates on the dark side of the satellite and only moves into the light at high altitude.

Thread resurrection. There were several mentions from microbloggers at LPSC this week about Enceladus' plumes. Because of this, I pulled imagery from the latest PDS releases and made a video of the three recordings from Revs 159, 161, and 163.
