Two weeks before mission's end, Cassini took its final photos documenting the activity of Enceladus' south polar plumes.
This photo was taken with the wide-angle camera from the night sides of Saturn and Enceladus and the unlit face of the rings.
Enceladus is beyond Saturn as seen from Cassini, its nightside lit by light reflected off of Saturn. The photo has been edited to remove effects of internal reflections within the camera and composited with a narrow-angle image of Enceladus to make the plumes more visible. A composite of two Cassini narrow-angle camera images of Enceladus, part of the last observations of Enceladus' plumes before the end of the Cassini mission.
