Enceladus Flyby Trajectory – Aug. 11, 2008
August 8, 2008
 

This graphic shows the trajectory for the Cassini spacecraft during its flyby of the icy moon Enceladus on Aug. 11, 2008. At closet approach Cassini will be 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the surface. On this flyby, Cassini's optical remote sensing instruments will image the fissures running across the moon's south pole, where the icy jets originate.
