The Cassini spacecraft looks toward the varied surface of the trailing hemisphere of Saturn's moon Enceladus.

The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on June 25, 2009. The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 594,000 kilometers (369,000 miles) from Enceladus and at a Sun-Enceladus-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 66 degrees.
