Enceladus in color
Filed under Enceladus, pretty pictures, Cassini, amateur image processing, global views, Saturn's moons
Cassini saw a half-full Enceladus on April 7, 2010. The cratered terrain in the north contrasts with the "tiger striped" terrain in the south. The slanting dawn light on the terminator picks out Enceladus' ropy ridges in high relief.
