Quick Kepler update

After the drama of launch, news from Kepler quickly died down, but its Twitter feed has kept up with updates, and everything sounds good. Yesterday morning the news was that Kepler had just surpassed the Moon's distance from Earth; this morning, the announcement is that the photometer has been turned on, and there are plans for taking data overnight.
