NASA VIDEO: Close-Up of Pluto's Moon Charon --Does It Harbor a Buried Ocean? ☼ The time-lapse “movie” of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, below was recently shot at record-setting distances with the Long-Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft. The movie was made over about a week, from Jan. 25-31, 2015. It was taken as part of the mission’s second optical navigation (“OpNav”) campaign to better refine the locations of Pluto and Charon...

Enceladus, one of Saturn's moons.  The Cassini spacecraft captured an image of plumes originating from the south pole of the icy moon with a very clear signature of small ice particles. There is possible evidence of Yellowstone-like geysers fed by reservoirs of liquid water.
