Enceladus 'E3' Flyby

Dramatic images of the surface of Saturn's brightest, whitest moon, Enceladus, show a body that has undergone extensive re-surfacing through a variety of geological processes.

Feb 18, 2005: False Color Look at Enceladus - A fresh look at Enceladus (505 kilometers, 314 miles across) reveals tempting new details about the brightest real estate in the Solar System.
Feb 18, 2005: Seeing Enceladus' Faults - This high-resolution image from Cassini shows a 70 kilometer x 84 kilometer (43 mile x 52 mile) region of "smooth plains" terrain on Enceladus' surface located slightly north of the equator on the moon's Saturn-facing hemisphere.
Feb 18, 2005: Cassini Views Enceladus in Stereo - The Cassini narrow angle camera took images of Enceladus' ropy, taffy-like topography from many different angles as it flew by on February 17, 2005.
