NASA - Saturn's Brightly Reflective Moon Enceladus

Saturn's Brightly Reflective Moon Enceladus

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.

The scene features Titan, largest, and Dione, third largest moon of Saturn.  Pale Dione is about 1,100 kilometers across and orbits over 300,000 kilometers from the visible outer edge of the A ring. At 5,150 kilometers across, Titan is about 2.3 million kilometers from Cassini, while Dione is 3.2 million kilometers away.

Messier 9 The globular star cluster Messier 9 has over stars within a diameter of about 90 light years. It is light years from Earth, near the central bulge of our Milky Way galaxy in the constellation of Sagittarius.

Does this dark ball look familiar? If so, that might be because it is our Sun. In the above image, a detailed solar view was captured originally in a very specific color of red light, then rendered in black and white, and then color inverted. The resulting image was added to a starfield, then also color inverted. Visible in the image of the Sun are long light filaments, dark active regions, prominences peaking around the edge, and a moving carpet of hot gas.

Спокойной ночи друзья и участнике сообщества !! Луна и океан .

Beautiful pic of the moon kissing the ocean. Good luck with your own romantic endeavors.

Saturn!

Saturn's northern hemisphere still shows the scars of the huge storm that raged through much of And, day by day, the shadows cast by the rings on the planet's southern hemisphere are growing wider as the seasons progress toward northern summer.

Backlit Saturn - Seen from the Cassini SpacecraftThe Cassini spacecraft was sent by NASA and ESA to study Saturn and its moons. Two of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus and Tethys, appear in the bottom right of this image.

A team of astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is reporting the discovery of another moon orbiting the icy dwarf planet Pluto. The moon is estimated to be irregular in shape and 6 to 15 miles across. It is in a 58,000-mile-diameter circular orbit around Pluto that is assumed to be co-planar with the other satellites in the system. #NASA #Pluto #Moon #Hubble #Astronomy #Space #Science #STEM - @camillasdo- #webstagram

Saturn’s Gravity Warps Icy Moon’s Erupting Jets--  The strong pull of Saturn’s gravity stretches and strains huge cracks on one of the planet’s icy moons that spray icy, geyser-like jets, a new study finds.    New images from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, in orbit around Saturn, reveal clues that have enabled scientists, for the first time, to make a connection between Saturn’s gravity and the jet-spewing fissures on the planet’s sixth largest moon, Enceladus.

At least four distinct plumes of water ice spew out from the south polar region of Saturn's moon Enceladus. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera - Credit: NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute
