Enceladus' tortured north polar craters

Enceladus' tortured north polar craters
Enceladus' tortured north polar craters Cassini spied this tight trio of craters as it approached Saturn's icy moon Enceladus for a close flyby of its high northern latitudes on 14 October 2015. The craters are, from the bottom: Dunyazad, Shahrazad, and al-Haddar. They are sliced through by thin fractures. The image was taken at a distance of approximately 10,000 kilometers from Enceladus. Image scale is 60 meters per pixel. NASA / JPL-Caltech / SSI
