Off Saturn's Shoulder
The Cassini spacecraft spies Enceladus and Epimetheus near the limb of Saturn.
Geologically active Enceladus is 505 kilometers (314 miles) across; smaller, more irregularly shaped Epimetheus is 116 kilometers (72 miles) across.
This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from less than a degree above the ringplane.
The image was taken in polarized green light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Oct. 27, 2007. The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.4 million kilometers (857,000 miles) from Enceladus. Epimetheus is 91,000 kilometers (57,000 miles) farther away from Cassini here. Image scale is about 8 kilometers (5 miles) per pixel on both moons.
