Filed under Enceladus, pretty pictures, Cassini, amateur image processing, global views, Saturn's moons
This image was taken during Cassini's final close flyby of Enceladus. It captures Enceladus' heavily fractured southern hemisphere from a distance of about 83,000 kilometers. Running left to right near the terminator is Cashmere Sulcus, and extending north towards the limb is Labtayt Sulcus. Mosul Sulcus is near the limb on the left. The south pole itself is in winter night.
