NASA's Cassini spacecraft beams back images of water jets on the south pole of Enceladus
The Cassini spacecraft has beamed back images of Enceladus, an icy moon of Saturn. The narrow angle camera on board the spacecraft captured the image back in April, and shows jets of water erupting from Enceladus. The water jets are backlit by the Sun, while the reflected sunlight from Saturn is lighting up the moon. The jets of water were first discovered by Cassini, which executed a close flyby through the jets to take a closer look at the water jets.
