New Enceladus Images: Enceladus at High-resolution and 3D

CICLOPS has released some processed views from the non-targeted Enceladus flyby. The image above is a false color view showing color variations between the ridge and trough terrain and the surround surface. These variations suggest that the ice in the canyons maybe fresher (either through smaller grain size or less non-ice contamination) than the rest of Enceladus. Other images released include a 4-image mosaic showing anastomosed fractures near the limb of Enceladus, an anaglyph showing 1-km tall ridges, and a framelet showing a chevron-ridged band of terrain covered in "leopard-spots".
