Enceladus over the Dawn
A hand colored grayscale image of a Cassini view of the icy Moon Enceladus, spraying its volcanic plumes from its Southern Polar region. The brightly backlit limb of Saturn shows twilight colors.

All color in the image is my artistic impression based on experience with comparable past space imagery.
