Grooves and Ridges in Enceladus’ Crust

Enceladus Aug 1 2017

This is my first time processing an image of Enceladus (I’ve made GIFs of the moon, showing ice plumes spurting out of its crust, but never an image). I’m pretty happy with the result. You can clearly see the grooves and ridges and these features that are caused by tectonic activity! This image was composed of images taken in the green, IR, and UV filters. Taken by Cassini on August 1, 2017.
