Enceladus flyby images are starting to appear

Cassini's flyby of Enceladus seems to have ended with the spacecraft in good health and lots of data being returned to Earth. The first images are now beginning to show up on the raw images website, and, interestingly, they are pictures taken at the end of the flyby, well after Cassini had already passed by. There's nothing worth raising a fuss about yet, but I'll be watching and refreshing that site all afternoon, waiting to see what good stuff Cassini has sent back to us from Saturn!
