Zoom into Enceladus! This animation is composed of 30 frames captured as Cassini swooped toward its targeted flyby of Enceladus on August 13, 2010. The images have been inverted so that the south pole appears as the "ground" below Cassini. Its active geysers are erupting into south polar winter darkness, but rise into daylight above Enceladus' surface.
