Stripes on Enceladus' South Pole

Stripes on Enceladus' South Pole
Stripes on Enceladus' South Pole Created using infrared data collected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, the red regions on this view of Enceladus' south pole correspond to warmer surface temperatures. The red areas with claw-like stripes are a system of vents that shoot warmer subsurface ocean water into space.
