  This image is the sixth skeet-shoot footprint taken during Cassini's very close flyby of Enceladus on Aug. 11, 2008.

The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Aug. 11, 2008 a distance of approximately 4,200 kilometers (2,610 miles) above the surface of Enceladus. Image scale is approximately 27 meters (89 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.

What's the little white blob at pixel 698,949? It's not in the skeet shoot #7 image.
