Plumes of icy material extend above the southern polar region of Saturn's moon Enceladus as imaged by the Cassini spacecraft in February 2005.
The monochrome view is presented along with a colour-coded version on the right. The latter reveals a fainter and much more extended plume component.
This clear-filter image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera at a distance of approximately 321 000 kilometres from Enceladus. The image scale is approximately 1.8 kilometres per pixel.
