This raw, unprocessed image of Saturn's moon Enceladus was taken on Oct. 19, 2011. As the spacecraft passed Enceladus, its infrared instruments, cameras and other instruments monitored activity on the moon, in particular the famed jets erupting from the moon's south pole. The orbiter flew within about 765 miles (1,230 kilometers) of Enceladus' surface.
