Cassini-Huygens
The white surface of Enceladus is composed of relatively clean water-ice. Below Enceladus are the rings of Saturn, seen nearly edge on. Compared to Enceladus, Saturn's rings show their comparatively high density of dirt with their golden-brown color in this natural color image. The planet Saturn, in the background, appears featureless except for thin ring shadows visible on the upper left.
