Enceladus encounter blogs

Looks like NASA is trying an experiment with blogging: there is now an Enceladus flyby blog with (as of this writing) three posts, including one from frequent Planetary Society Blog guest John Spencer (who talks about how Enceladus being in Saturn's shadow during Cassini's closest approach is good news for his instrument team, if not for the camera team). Because of the time conflict between this event and LPSC I won't be giving this amazing Enceladus flyby the attention I think it deserves, so check out what John and his coworkers have to say! Also, if you're not aware, the Cassini mission publishes an excellent mission overview of each targeted flyby before it happens; here's the one for Enceladus (PDF format, 1.2 MB). There's also a host of multimedia presentations, including a video titled "Taking the Plunge" and a couple of interactive features on the flyby and the moon, which it seems you have to access from the mission home page.
