Recently Cassini made some close flybys of Saturn's moon Enceladus. It took some awesome pictures showing awesome details of this small moon.

These pictures are simply outstanding. When I first saw them, I had to collect my jaw back from the floor. Beside scientific meanig they provide us a huge amount of artistic power. I have to say that they're pretty inspiring.

Hello, Maciej,

tank’s a lot for these breathtaking pictures. Looks very »surreal«. Mother
Nature is still the most taleted space-artist ever :-)

New Horizons may or may not. When you're as far from the sun as Pluto is, the scare light conditions make it kind of difficult to get a good look at something as small as Pluto is. (well, in the grand scheme of things) I'm thinking we'll just see some dark, grainy pictures of something resembling a giant blue snow ball.

I know the pictures never won't be that technically perfect as the Cassini's, actually every picture of Pluto will be great enough, even grainy and dark (and very mysterious)
