Saturn’s moon Enceladus drifts before the rings and the tiny moon Pandora in this view that NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captured on Nov. 1, 2009. The entire scene is backlit by the Sun, providing striking illumination for the icy particles that make up both the rings and the jets emanating from the south pole of Enceladus, which is about 314 miles (505 km) across. Pandora, which is about (52 miles, 84 kilometers) wide, was on the opposite side of the rings from Cassini and Enceladus when the image was taken. This view looks toward the night side on Pandora as well, which is lit by dim golden light reflected from Saturn.

Enceladus, one of saturn's moons, impresses with mystery geysers that spit out into space. This documentary about the findings of the Cassini-Hyugens spacecraft shows the beautiful geysers and answers the question: Does life exist on Saturn or one of his moons?

NASA has released new images from the Cassini spacecraft, currently orbit Saturn and its moons.

The latest images show Pandora from a distance of 25,200 miles.

Measuring only 52 miles across, Pandora is tiny a moon in comparison to Saturn's other moons, such as Titan, which measures thousands of miles across.
