Surface of the moon of Enceladus

This is an artist's rendering of the surface of Enceladus, the sixth-largest moon of Saturn. Known for its extensive water ice on the surface, it is about one-tenth the size of Titan, Saturn's largest moon. Cassini identified a water-rich plume, which spouts from the moon's south polar region. It is known to be extremely geologically active.
