View over Enceladus' south

View over Enceladus' south
View over Enceladus' south Cassini captured a multi-frame mosaic of Enceladus as it receded from its 18 May 2010 flyby. This unusual view covers near-polar terrain in the southern hemisphere; the south pole is toward the top, and the landscape recedes from the viewer toward the top. With the Sun nearly behind Cassini, the terrain is mostly fully lit, so subtle differences in color make some blocks of Enceladan crust appear darker than others. NASA / JPL-Caltech / SSI
