Like hunters sighting a clay duck flying fast in the sky, this mosaic of Cassini images was made from 'skeet shoot' narrow-angle images 1, 2, 3, and 4, all captured during the Oct. 31, 2008, flyby of Saturn's moon Enceladus.

The resolution of this mosaic is 12.3 meters (41 feet) per pixel and jet source VI (see PIA08385) is identified in the upper right.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
