Geysers on Saturn's Moon?

Who could pass up a story like this? Cassini may have taken pictures of geysers on Saturn's moon Enceladus. It joins Io and possibly Triton (and of course, Earth) as the only known places in the solar system with volcanic activity.

Getting to Tibet's and Kamchatka's geysers isn't easy. I don't imagine there will be geyser gazers on Enceladus anytime soon.

Cassini will be swinging by Enceladus again in 2008 and hopefully will be able to get more data.
