Passing Rhea at an altitude of only 620 miles would have given Cassini’s camera an unprecedented detailed view of Rhea’s surface. Where can I see those 12 images shot at close-encounter? Why did the camera then stop taking pictures and not resume again until the craft was 167,000 miles away?

You really can't fool me. The Jan. 28 image labeled "Prometheus -Rev 125" is really a well-done fried egg tossed in the air by an artistic cook.
