Are HTTP headers encrypted when transported via of SSL

The reason I ask is that for basic authentication, the userid and password are stored in an http header.  

So are the uid and pw safe (and can not be stolen under normal means) when transported via SSL

You can also verify that SSL is working properly by using an application like Wireshark and see if you can see anything in "plaintext"
