Enceladus

Enceladus is a small moon of Saturn.  It’s about as dead as they come.  A frozen tundra more hostile than anything imagined on Earth.  And, that’s what makes it beautiful.  Well, when looking at it from here anyway.  The icy shield makes it the most reflective object in the solar system.  If it weren’t so small, you could see it from Earth.  It’s a close neighbor of Titan.  So close, yet so incredibly different.

UPDATE: Going to date this update as of now, 6/26/17, although it’s been known for about a decade. Enceladus is speculated to have liquid under all that ice. It’s pretty much a given. The search for life is pretty much zeroing in right now on Enceladus and Europa.
