This wide-angle view is one of the highest resolution images yet acquired by Cassini and shows what appears to be a geologically youthful, tectonically fractured terrain.
The image was taken during the NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini spacecraft's very close fly-by of Enceladus on 14 July 2005, from a distance of approximately 208 kilometres above Enceladus. Resolution in the image is about 37 metres per pixel. The contrast has been enhanced to improve the visibility of surface features.
