Cassini-Huygens
This graphic shows Cassini's path, or ground track, as it crossed over the surface of Enceladus near the time of closest approach during the flyby on July 14, 2005.
The ground track is indicated by a yellow line, marked by increments of 10 seconds before and after closest approach (C/A). The spacecraft came within 175 kilometers (109 miles) from the surface of Enceladus at closest approach.
The red contour encloses the region on Enceladus around the south pole that is the approximate boundary of the warm region as measured by the Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) instrument on Cassini.
