Out of sight, literally - where exactly is Mimas in relation to this shadow? Perhaps, Carolyn, your team could post an identical image with an arrow or cross marking the moon's position?

Maybe this shadow is a reflection of Mimas' shadow.

( No details visible on the 4 moons and no sun on Tethys' north polar area. ) ( On 'Shadow Cap' Mimas is looking unusual with the penumbra and umbra of the rings darkening its north polar area. )

Here I'm seeing no new details of the Odysseus Crater ( For me it's more a basin than a crater ) . There was still no close flyby of the Cassini spacecraft taking pictures of 'Cassini class' high resolution of the Odysseus crater. For me I believe very much that the ( my ) results of such images would be interesting. The same kind of being interesting for me would be close-up images of a close Mimas flyby which hasn't been made up to now, too. But up to now, at least our spacecraft has taken better views of Mimas and better views of the Odysseus crater than the Voyager spacecraft.

An elliptical shadow ( cast by Mimas ) as expected. ( There the rings are "regular" ) .

Actually, a few months ago CICLOPS released an image in which Mimas appeared being eclipsed by Saturn's rings: http://ciclops.org/view/5178/Shadow_Cap

Here I'm seeing the same effect on the shadow as in "Trumpeting the Equinox" , now at Mimas' shadow. This effect is changing the shadow's shape at the F Ring making it not perfectly elliptical. My idea is that there the F Ring is a bit higher ( thicker when seeing at the rings edge-on) changing the shadow's shape - especially at its center where it is at its brightest.

Hi Dragon_of_Luck_Mah_Jonng1971, Hyperion's ultra low density amazes me. 0.55 g cm3, the least dense solid object known in the solar system. The deep craters certainly looked like punched in material, although IIRC many are thought to have burned into the ice with dark floors absorbing the little solar radiation this far from the Sun. I am aware that there are no further very close passes planned for Hyperion, but are any decent further passes possible, lets say less than 100,000 KM? Or for that matter, any of the other minor moons other than the close Helene pass planned? A closeish pass of Mimas would also be quite interesting, particularly with density measurements & to see whether or not the surface is peppered with smaller & smaller craters, or they cut off below a certain size, as with Jupiter's Callisto?

Here's another cool example of perspective at work; Mimas' orbit has a very little inclination over Saturn's equator (and beyond the F-ring) but in this one that seems not to occur: http://ciclops.org/view/4011/A_Wisp_of_Smoke I really like those images taken with the NAC. No matter most of them are B-W; the way it toys with the perspective more than compensates that. Just remember those images of moon conjunctions taken roughly three years ago, when Caasini's orbit was quite close to Saturn's equator. Hope to see more of them!.

the mind's eye can certainly see many perspectives in many of these images. for a moment i saw Mimas as if it were just inside the F ring. obviously imposible. i am very intrigued by the image of the rings at this phase angle, espesially with the two moons brightly lit in the forground. i have been wondering how "dark" the unlit side of the rings would look in comparison to something brightly iluminated. love this image!
