Enceladus shows its icy face and famous plumes in raw, unprocessed images captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft during its successful flyby on November 6. The camera was pointing toward Enceladus at approximately 108,044 kilometres away. During this Enceladus encounter, the 16th of Cassini’s mission, the spacecraft passed the moon at distance of about 300 miles (500 kilometres).
