Sunset on Enceladus
April 8, 2008
 
A distant sun forms a halo (refracted sunlight by ice crystals) amid streamers of pure water ice particles, which spew into space from cracks in the south polar surface of Saturn's tiny moon Enceladus.

The Fountains of Enceladus
April 10, 2008
 
This painting of the south polar region of Saturn's tiny moon Enceladus shows massive jets of water ice being blasted into space. The moon's lack of atmosphere and low gravity prevent the jets from fanning out quickly as they might on a more massive world. These plumes feed the extensive E ring of Saturn.
