The first images from Cassini are coming in from the flyby on February 16. These first images were taken approximately 173,902 miles (279,868 kilometers) away using the RED, GRN, BLU filters. It is the Methane filters that typically bring out the detail in atmosphere and surface. As Cassini flies by hopefully we will see those filters used to help bring out the detail. But,we can see right now is the Methane atmosphere coming in as blue along the edge of Saturn's larges moon. Once the new images are received, I will be processing them and posting. Look forward to some gorgeous images!
