  Enceladus - A Tectonic Feast

Enceladus - A Tectonic Feast
Image credit: NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: On October 5, 2008, just after coming within about 15 miles of the surface of Enceladus, NASA's Cassini captured this stunning mosaic as the spacecraft sped away from this geologically active moon of Saturn. Craters and cratered terrains are rare in this view of the southern region of the moon's Saturn-facing hemisphere.
