It made it's 3rd pass past the planet yesterday afternoon and has returned more images of areas never before seen by either Mariner 10 in the mid 1970s or it's own previous two passes.

Seems like Mercury is going to be an interesting place to explore, even if it only takes 88 days to circle the sun.
