New Enceladus Image: Sideways Shadow

CICLOPS has released this processed view of Enceladus "hanging over the rings of Saturn. Some slight albedo variations are visible across the visible disk of Enceladus but at this resolution it is difficult to make out much structure (though this could be because we are looking at a fairly bland area). This image was taken in early March. The distance to Enceladus is 1.1 million km yielding a resolution of 6 km/pixel.
