There was an interesting article on the BBC News site the other day about scientists discovering that the ice spewing out of gashes in the surface of Saturn's little moon Enceladus is squeezed out by Saturn's gravitational pull: they found that Enceladus' ice geysers are more active when the moon is furthest from Saturn, at the point where Saturn's gravity is heaving it back around.

Wobble in the moon can only be as large as it is if global ocean separates solid core from outer crust: http://smbhax.com/cgi-bin/newsarchive.pl?p=1788
