Plumes both large and small spray water ice from multiple locations along the famed "tiger stripes" near the south pole of Saturn's moon Enceladus. The Cassini spacecraft has discovered the best evidence yet for a large-scale saltwater reservoir beneath the icy crust of the moon. The data came from the spacecraft's direct analysis of salt-rich ice grains close to the jets ejected from the moon. The tiger stripes are fissures that spray icy particles, water vapor and organic compounds.

Water, when we have too much of it, can be a problem, as the first two images in Thursday’s Pictures in the News show. They show a boy huddled in the cold rain of Tropical Storm Meari in Manila while in Minot, N.D., preparations are being made for inevitable flooding from the Souris River.

Also water-related are shots of pedestrians in the rain in Beijing, divers recovering a Greek air force Mirage 2000 jet fighter from the bottom of the Aegean Sea and a humpback whale breaching outside Sydney, Australia.

Not all the photos are all wet, so take a look.
