Another View of Enceladus Plumes

October 1, 2010

If you have read my earlier post, you can easily tell what’s this picture about. This beautiful picture of Saturn’s moon, Enceladus, was taken by Cassini space probe on Dec 25th, 2009. You can clearly see the water geysers oozing out from Saturn’s surface (roughly at rate of 150-350 kg/sec). I forgot to mention in my earlier post that these geysers are only present in the Southern pole of the moon. In this image, the moon is double lit: Sun is present on the other side of the moon, while Saturn is towards our side which is lighting moon’s front surface via it’s reflected light. What do you think about the image? Did you like it?
