Even though it appears like a tiny drop before the might of the giant Saturn, Enceladus holds many mysteries and wonders to be explored.

Enceladus is Saturn’s sixth largest moon. It contains hydrothermal vents that spew water vapor and ice particles from an underground ocean beneath the icy crust of the moon. This plume of material includes organic compounds, volatile gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and salts.

This stunning image was captured by the Cassini Orbiter at a distance of approximately 930,000 miles (1.5 million kilometers) from Saturn.
