Very Quick Question - Does ML Install Automatically?

Quick question. After you've downloaded the 4 point something GB file does your computer prompt you to install Mountain Lion by launching an installer window and ask for an agreement, or does it just install immediately in app store without you knowing and then prompt you to restart once installation is complete! I want to save a copy of the installer file and i know the file gets deleted after installation.

It will launch the installer and prompt you to install it, but will not proceed without your interaction. You will be able to quit the installer and save it somewhere safe first.
