Like a proud peacock displaying its tail, Enceladus shows off its beautiful plume to the Cassini spacecrafts cameras. Enceladus (313 miles, or 504 kilometers across) is seen here illuminated by light reflected off Saturn. This view looks toward the Saturn-facing side of Enceladus. North on Enceladus is up and rotated 45 degrees to the right. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Jan. 18, 2013.

Saturn's Brightly Reflective Moon Enceladus
A brightly reflective Enceladus appears before Saturn's rings, while the planet's larger moon Titan looms in the distance. Jets of water ice and vapor emanating from the south pole of Enceladus, which hint at subsurface sea rich in organics, and liquid hydrocarbons ponding on the surface on the surface of Titan make these two of the most fascinating moons in the Saturnian system.
This image, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows the dusty structure encircling the center of the galaxy, forming a knotted ring around the galaxy’s brightly glowing middle. Interestingly, this ring lies perpendicular to the plane of NGC 2768 itself, stretching up and out of the galaxy. The dust in NGC 2768 forms an intricate network of knots and filaments.

Rim fire, California This natural-color satellite image of the drought-fueled Rim Fire was collected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASAs Terra satellite on Aug. 25, 2013. The fire began on Aug. 17 and, as of Aug. 26, continues to burn on the Stanislaus National Forest, Yosemite National Park, and Bureau of Land Management and state responsibility land. Over 224 square miles have been affected. Image credit: NASA/Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid…
