A fun shot shared by +Jason Major which shows Enceladus like a rocket blasting through the E-ring.
This is also awesome science. Think of Enceladus like a fog machine orbiting around Saturn, blasting out its icy vapor to create a cloudy ring held into place by +Saturn s and the icy moons gravity. It would eventually get blown away by the solar winds, but the leaky moon replenishes the fog every orbit.
