Moons > Enceladus
This mosaic features the highest resolution data yet captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft of the leading, or western, hemisphere of Saturn’s moon Enceladus.
New to Old on Enceladus
This wide-angle image shows the south polar region of Saturn’s moon Enceladus and outlines the area covered by the high-resolution mosaic combining data from the imaging science subsystem and composite infrared spectrometer aboard NASA’s Cassini spacecraft
Baghdad Sulcus in Context -- Unannotated
This anaglyph made from images captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft shows a dramatic, 3-D view of one of the deep fractures nicknamed 'tiger stripes' on Saturn’s moon Enceladus.
Baghdad Sulcus in 3-D
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.
Bursting at the Seams
The right-hand image shows a dramatically improved view of heat radiation from a warm fissure near the south pole of Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus. It is nearly 10 times more detailed than the image on the left.
Zooming in on Heat at Baghdad Sulcus
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft shows a new view of Saturn’s moon Enceladus in a whole-disk mosaic of the geologically active moon's leading, or western, hemisphere.
Enceladus' Leading Hemisphere
Plumes of water ice spew out from the famed fractures known as 'tiger stripes' near the south pole of Enceladus.

Balancing It Out
Saturn's moon Enceladus orbits serenely before a backdrop of clouds roiling the atmosphere the planet.
Beyond the Tumult
Saturn's rings occupy the space between two of the planet's moons in this image which shows the highly reflective moon Enceladus in the background and the smaller moon Janus in the fore.
The Space Between
Enceladus passes in front of Rhea
Enceladus Meets Rhea
Enceladus passes behind the larger Tethys, as seen in this pair of Cassini images.
