Enceladus, an Icy Moon of Saturn

Enceladus is the sixth largest of Saturn’s 60 moons, and has a dramatic, icy landscape. Enceladus not only has a liquid sea under the surface, but also has active ice volcanoes! It is considered the strongest candidate in our solar system for life outside of Earth. This print was inspired by images captured by NASA/ESA’s Cassini Huygens spacecraft, which completed its 13 year investigation of Saturn and its environs on September 15, 2017. It’s hard not to be inspired by the beautiful features of this moon; another gorgeous feature of the local Saturnian neighborhood.
