Hello, Helene!

Cassini snaps a shot of Helene

On March 3 the Cassini spacecraft flew by the 22-mile-wide Helene, an irregularly-shaped moon orbiting Saturn in the same path as the much larger Dione. Cassini was about 1,200 miles from the moon when this image was taken.

See more photos of Helene on the Cassini imaging center website here.
