Plumes on Saturn’s Moon Enceladus

Dramatic plumes, both large and small, spray water ice out from many locations along the famed “tiger stripes” near the south pole of Saturn’s moon Enceladus in this image taken by NASA’s Cassini probe on Nov. 21, 2009

Truly amazing stuff that we can even see this. Enjoy
