Exploring Saturn took Tanno and Iguda to the moons Titan and Enceladus. Saturn has more than 80 moons.
If you look closely at the image above you might be able to spot some of them.
Here Titan has been photographed in infrared light, from different angles to see all around.

This image of Saturn’s moon Enceladus shows the features in false colour. The surface has an icy crust and under that is a liquid ocean of methane and water.
The frozen surface has many cracks and deep valleys, which may be places where water shoots up like a fountain.
The next picture was taken by the Cassini spacecraft on Nov. 27, 2005 at a distance of approximately 148,000 kilometers. Individual jets spurting ice particles and water vapour.

Many of the great pictures we’ve seen of Saturn and its moons were taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft that visit
