 Only slightly larger than Mimas, Enceladus is about one-tenth as massive as the next larger pair of satellites, Tethys and Dione. Enceladus appears to be much smoother than the other satellites of Saturn and may be source of Ring E material. Although the north polar region is heavily cratered, Voyager 2 pictures of northern intermediate and equatorial latitudes display sinuous striations reminiscent of patterns on Jupiter's moo Ganymede. On Ganymede, these structures have been interpreted as being the result of the shifting of floating slabs of ice.
