Cassini viewed Enceladus from a phase angle of 160 degrees (with the Sun nearly in front of the moon) to catch this glorious view of the moon's night side silhouetted against the E ring as it replenishes the E ring with its geysers. At upper right is the outer edge of Saturn's rings: the A ring and severely overexposed F ring.
