As it swooped past the south pole of Saturn’s moon Enceladus on 14 July 2005, Cassini acquired high-resolution views of this puzzling ice world. From afar, Enceladus exhibits a bizarre mixture of softened craters and complex, fractured terrains. This large mosaic of 21 images has been arranged to provide a full-disc view of the anti-Saturn hemisphere on Enceladus. This mosaic is a false-colour view highlighting the long fractures – tiger stripes – in blue.
