Submission + - Using shadows to measure the geysers of Enceladus (discovermagazine.com) 1

The Bad Astronomer writes: "A lot of folks are posting about the amazing new pictures of the icy moon Enceladus returned from the Cassini spacecraft. However, one of them shows the shadow of the moon across the geyser plumes. This has been seen before, but I suddenly realized how that can help determine the geysers' locations, and I thought /. readers might be interested in the general method."
