Strange and beautiful. The fountains seem suspended, like if they were not connected to the black disk of the surface. Is this the effect of Enceladus casting its shadow on the basis of the geysers? And another question: do these jets "propel" - even slightly - Enceladus, and distort its orbit the tiniest bit? Being located in one specific spot and not compensated by other effects, on a very long period? Or do these fractures and jets randomly migrate anyway, so their tiny effects - if any - is also randomised on the long run?

According to JPL's Solar System Simulator, Enceladus is closest to the rings. The other moon is Tethys. In this raw image, South is up.

Fantastic set of images of Helene. Do we know if the surface is dust covered or comosed of icy grains, possibly sourced from the geysers of Enceladus or Saturn's rings in general? Also Helene is only slightly larger than the Mars moon Phobos. Helene generally lacks impact craters accenpt for the side that is leading. Phobos seen at this resolution would be heavily cratered & grooved. Helene appears to lack both. Perhaps Helenequakes from impacts triggers these landslides & erases craters??? The surface gravity cannot be any more than 1/1,500th that on Earth. Andrew R Brown.

Mass concentrations is an interesting hypothesis. Any way to test any of this? i had not thought of unequal mass distributions as a posible cause of the "flow lines" (but i had thought perhaps they might be fingerprints of the "person" who made this snow ball. rather big hands. anything match in the FBI database?) i do see the resemblance to hair growth. if the flow lines are ice from Enceladus, what colected that ice into lines? the most likely force i can think of is gravety. Peace Aleksei

Hi NeKto I have not been here for a while. That is true, perhaps the flow lines could also indicate mass concentrations within Helene. I also understood that the flow lines could also be from ice swept up from the geysers on Enceladus. The Tethys tojan moons Telesto & Calypso are also largely covered in fine ice & Calypso too shows hints of flowlines. Would be interesting to get a close up of Polydeuces if possible too, the other Dione trojan moon, the one that trails Dione. Polydeuces is only about 3.5 KM wide at most, so Helene is very much larger. Andrew Brown.

Another interesting mug shot of Helene, the leading Trojan moon of Dione. Helene is only 36 KM by 32 KM by 30 KM in size, where as Dione is 1,123 KM wide!!!! Mind you the trailling trojan moon Polydeuces is much smaller again, perhaps only 3 KM wide!!!!!!!! What is interesting to see is that the three trojan moons seen up close to date (Helene for Dione as well as Telesto & Calypso for Tethys) is that thet all have smoother profiles & certainly Calypso & Helene display flow like features. Are they sweeping up ice crystals ejected from Enceladus's geysers??? Andrew Brown.

***Reminder*** Just to say that around perikrone today, there was a non targetted Mimas pass, as well as that of Enceladus & Helene shortly after. Looking forward to seeing those images, Cassini did not pass that close to any of them, but more than close enough to reveal much new data & views from differing vantage points, than ever before. Andrew Brown.

Hi Dragon_of_Luck_Mah_Jonng1971. I agree with you, many of those craters are very Mimas like. I still think that Rhea is very unevolved, one of the largest, in fact potetially the second largest unevolved object in the entire Solar System, only the Jupiter moon Callisto taking # 1 in that list. The similar sized Uranus moons Titania & Oberon are certainly far more evolved than Rhea, Titania has huge graben, possible frosting & a large smoother region with smaller & softened craters & Oberon although cratered, shows signs of cryovolcanism with many craters having dark floors, at least on huge chasm, many craters appear 'softened' like Enceladus, Dione, Miranda, Ariel, Titania, Triton & Ganymede, worlds that have been & some may, in the case of Enceladus & Triton still are geologically active. Rhea shows none of that, a surface that is practically craters on craters on craters. Some faulting is present, but how much of that is due to the Tirawa Basin forming event or other impacts, remains to be seen. Rhea is certainly a relic from the earliest days, much to tell us about the history of the Kronian system ,regarding the environment this far out from the Sun & cratering rates of the Kronian system from the period shortly after the formative period. Rhea is fascinating, not so much because of Rhea itself, but because of what Rhea can tell us about the history of the Kronian system as a whole. Iapetus is another moon interesting for the same reason, aside from the huge mountain ridge, little else appears to have happened there either, Mimas too. Rhea is extremely photogenic too. It's an amazing surface visually, craters of differing shapes & sizes, some regions eppear more hilly than others, etc. Yes they are Cosmic Rays @ the lower left. Andrew Brown.
