Water jets on Saturn's moon, Enceladus.

Enceladus Jets: The icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus spurts ice particles, water vapor, and trace organic molecules into space. Intriguing to astrobiologists.

It just 'accidently' makes the symbol of infinity! perfect since in symbolism, the sun symbols Christ, the moon the Church. ~ mw ~ Fixed position photograph of the sun, taken at the same time of day over a year. Looks like the infinity symbol!

Geysers of water ice erupt from Saturn's moon Enceladus, the plumes are backlit by the sun while moon’s dark side is illuminated by reflected light from Saturn. The Cassini spacecraft flew right through the plumes to let its instruments 'taste' them.

Geysers of water ice erupt from Enceladus. Our next possibility to find out if the life is common or rare fenomena in the universe.

Atmosphere of the Moon - This picture was taken with the Clementine spacecraft, when the sun was behind the moon. The white area on the edge of the moon is the Lunar Horizon Glow, and the bright dot at the top is the planet Venus.

Saturn’s rings, Titan and Enceladus  Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus hangs below the gas giant’s rings while Titan lurks in the background, in this new image taken by the Cassini spacecraft.  Faint detail of the tiger stripe markings can be seen on Enceladus’ surface, which is framed against Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.

In an amazing chance photograph, the Hubble Space Telescope snapped a view of two galaxies lining up, one behind the other, as viewed from the space telescope's vantage point. The image offers a rare view of the overlapping galaxies, which are collectively known as NGC 3314, Hubble scientists said in a statement.

Purple space!

A giant gas cloud spanning light years with a mass of 10 billion Suns inside the galaxy merger system NGC involving two spiral Milky Way-sized galaxies each containing a supermassive black hole in the center.

A new image from NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer completes a multi-wavelength, neon-colored portrait of the enormous Cartwheel galaxy after a smaller galaxy plunged through it, triggering ripples of sudden, brief star formation.

Venus is visible above Earth's moon, which is illuminated solely by light reflected from Earth. Because of Venus's nearness to Earth and the way its clouds reflect sunlight, it appears to be the brightest planet in the night sky.

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.

NASA / JPL-Caltech / SSI  //      NASA's Cassini orbiter captured this view of Saturn on June 15, from a distance of about 1.8 million miles (2.9 million kilometers). The rings' shadow runs across the planet's sunlit side. The speck in the lower left corner is Enceladus, a 313-mile-wide (504-kilometer-wide) moon of Saturn.
