I saw a photo of Enceladus on NASA's Astronomy Photo Of the Day, and tried to recreate it in Space Engine. It was surprisingly easy, just warp to the time mentioned in the article.

For comparison, Space Engine and Real photo:

That's a beautiful photo from the Cassini probe. The moon's deepest canyon in the Labtayt Sulci reminds me of my characteristic ideas for canyon worlds I discussed awhile back. The size of this moon at ~500km in diameter shows off the depth of that big canyon well in this photo. The deepest part shown measures at 4 km wide, 162km long and 1 km deep. This is the kind of visual ratio I'm hoping to see with canyons when seen from space in SE.
