Prometheus and Saturn's rings
Seen within the vast expanse of Saturn's rings, Prometheus appears as little more than a dot. But that little moon still manages to shape the F ring, confining it to its narrow domain.

Enceladus
Differently Aged Terrain
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 -- Contrast Enhanced
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 -- Annotated
In this unique mosaic image combining high-resolution data from the imaging science subsystem and composite infrared spectrometer aboard NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, pockets of heat appear along one of the mysterious fractures in the south polar region of Saturn’s moon Enceladus.

Enceladus' Warm Baghdad Sulcus -- Unannotated
This mosaic shows extraordinary details of tectonic deformation in the fractured south polar region of Saturn’s moon Enceladus, where jets of water ice spray outward to form Saturn's E ring.

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.
