Enceladus

 

Performed by the Bucknell University Symphonic Band, conducted by Christian Humcke.

Discovered in 1789 by William Herschel, Enceladus is the sixth largest of Saturn's moons, and also the inspiration for this piece. Enceladus has an icy surface with a layer of water directly underneath. Occasionally, the surface erupts and geysers burst from the ice capped surface into the vastness of space, shimmering a brilliant light blue.
