The first pictures should be available later on, apparently some time around 0800 UTC.

The investigators don't know right now what was photographed, so the crater formed from by Deep Impact in 2005 might not show up.  If it does, they'll be interested in what, if anything, changed over the years.  If it doesn't, they expect to see some new features that Deep Impact wasn't able to take pictures of.
