Hubble Finds Pluto’s Moons Tumbling in Absolute Chaos

“ Saturn has 62 discovered moons, 53 of which are named. Saturn’s moons are largely named after Titans - all here are but for Enceladus, named for a giant. These pictures were taken on the Cassini.

Mimas Transits Saturn’s Ring Shadows Saturn’s tiny moon Mimas drifts against the backdrop of the planet’s northern latitudes. The long, dark lines are shadows cast by Saturn’s rings. Just like Earth’s atmosphere, Saturn’s atmosphere – when relatively cloud-free - can scatter blue light, giving the plan­et a bluish hue. Mosaic composite photograph.

Lakes On Saturn's Moon Titan Spotted By NASA's Cassini Probe. Titan more closely resembles Earth than any other planet or moon in our solar system, with a dense atmosphere and stable liquids on its surface. But Titan's clouds, lakes and rain are made up of hydrocarbons, such as ethane and methane, rather than water.
