Enceladus Raw Flyby Images

Carolyn Porco, the lead for Cassini's imaging team, warned on Twitter that the flyby of Saturn's moon Enceladus performed by the spacecraft on Nov. 2 wasn't really an "imaging" flyby, and that we might have to wait until the Nov. 21 flyby for really good images. But just take a look the images returned so far, with stunning looks at the jets shooting from the moon! Another image takes a close look at the surface. These are raw, unprocessed images, but what images they are!

Check out Nancy Atkinson's article on Universe Today for more stunning pictures.
