Description

we are a few thousand kilometres from enceladus (bottom), a mid-sized icy moon of saturn. another satellite, tethys, can be seen close to the sun. saturn itself is behind us and below, reflecting sunlight back and faintly illuminating enceladus' night side. in 2005, the cassini spacecraft discovered that this relatively small world — only 500 km across — is, surprisingly, geologically active. geyser-like jets of water were seen venting from the moon's south-polar surface ices, produced by a process called cryovolcanism ('cold volcanism'). plumes erupting from enceladus. earth is a few thousand kilometres from enceladus, a mid-sized, icy moon of saturn. another of saturn's moons, tethys, can be seen at top right obscuring part of the sun. in 2005, the cassini spacecraft discovered that the relatively small world of enceladus (only 500km across) is, surprisingly, geologically active. geyser-like jets of water were seen venting from the moon's south-polar surface ices, produced by a process called cyrovolcanism (cold volcanism).
