The surface of Enceladus is one of the brightest objects in the solar system. It is covered by water ice that reflects sunlight like freshly fallen snow.
There are at least five different types of terrains seen on Enceladus including fissures, plains, and crustal deformation that indicates the interior may be liquid.
