This image of Saturn's moon Enceladus shows a region of craters softened by time and torn apart by tectonic stresses. Fractures 100 to 400 meters (330 to 1,300 feet) in width crosscut the terrain: One set trends northeast-southwest and another trends northwest-southeast. North is up. A region of "grooved terrain" is visible on the left. A broad canyon, its floor partly concealed by shadow, is notable on the right. The image was taken in visible light with Cassini's narrow-angle camera from a distance of about 25,700 kilometers (16,000 miles, red-colored image) and from Enceladus and at a Sun-Enceladus-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 46 degrees. Pixel scale is 150 meters (490 feet) per pixel. The image has been contrast-enhanced to aid visibility. A stereo version of the scene is also available (see
