Whoa!  It almost looks as though there is debris around the holes along the ice ridges.  If so, it could be an indicator of cryovolcanism!
My God!  It's full of universes!

Plasma data:

Nitrogen atmosphere is escaping. Solar wind from the Sun at supersonic speeds crash into the escaping atmosphere and produce a shock upstream. Becomes ionized.
