Another great Enceladus shot

Here's a 4-frame mosaic of Enceladus images -- just another everyday spectacularly alien landscape.

By the way, if you checked the Cassini raw images website earlier in the day, you should return, because there are more photos from the Enceladus flyby as well as numerous high-resolution shots on Rhea, apparently color frames captured with high sun. I don't yet know their geometry -- I wonder if they'll reveal more of the relatively blue spots lined up along the equator that were cited earlier this year as further evidence that Rhea may have a ring?
