[FOLLOWUP] Cassini Flies Past Titan

The good news is that the Cassini space probe orbiting Saturn made a successful fly-by of the moon Titan today. The bad news is that we have to wait until later tonight to see any images. Cassini won't start transmitting until 9:30 PM EDT, and there's a several-hour time delay on top of that. Hopefully by tomorrow morning we'll have some eye candy.
