"During this, our tenth holiday season at Saturn, we hope that these images from Cassini remind everyone the world over of the significance of our discoveries in exploring such a remote and beautiful planetary system," said Carolyn Porco, Cassini imaging team leader, based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo. "Happy holidays from all of us on Cassini."
Cassini captures Enceladus and its icy surface, looking very much like a glistening snowball, giving scientists a good view of the fissures, fractures and ridges that decorate the moon's surface. The north and south poles of Saturn are highlighted in these pictures and are captured in bright hues of blue, yellow and green and resemble Christmas ornaments.
