Jets of material have been seen emanating from the south-polar terrain of Saturn’s satellite Enceladus. Observations have shown that this region is anomalously warm, with the hottest measured temperatures coinciding with the four ‘tiger stripe’ fractures, named Alexandria, Cairo, Baghdad and Damascus, that straddle the region. Here we use Cassini images taken from a variety of viewing directions over two years to triangulate the source locations for the most prominent jets, and compare these… Expand
