Enceladus Closeup

July 28, 2005

This wide-angle view is one of the highest resolution images yet acquired by Cassini and shows what appears to be a geologically youthful, tectonically fractured terrain. A higher resolution, narrow-angle view of the center of the terrain shown here is available as well as a comparison view showing the position of the narrow-angle image within this image.

The image was taken during Cassini's very close flyby of Enceladus on July 14, 2005, from a distance of approximately 208 kilometers (129 miles) above Enceladus. Resolution in the image is about 37 meters (121 feet) per pixel. The image's contrast has been enhanced to improve the visibility of surface features.
