Geyser on Enceladus with Saturn & Titan
Liquid water breaches the floor of a crevasse and is propelled into the frigid vacuum of space as a jet of ice crystals. The perspective is from Enceladus' south pole. Saturn rests low on the horizon, its rings seen edge-on as a thin line. Saturn's largest satellite Titan appears as an orange dot on the right just above the horizon.
Special thanks to Björn Jónsson for his Saturn clouds map.
