  This image is the seventh skeet-shoot image taken during Cassini's very close flyby of Enceladus on Aug. 11, 2008. Damascus Sulcus is crossing the upper part of the image. (The image is upside down from the skeet-shoot footprint shown here.)

The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Aug. 11, 2008 a distance of approximately 4,742 kilometers (2,947 miles) above the surface of Enceladus. Image scale is approximately 30 meters (98 feet) per pixel.

The Cassini Equinox Mission is a joint United States and European endeavor. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter was designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging team consists of scientists from the US, England, France, and Germany. The imaging operations center and team lead (Dr. C. Porco) are based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
