Can you see Saturn's moon Pan? Its that tiny white dot left of center, within Saturn's rings. Despite its size in comparison to the planet, the moon actually plays a key role in shaping Saturn's changing rings. NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured this image on July 2 of this year from a distance of about 840,000 miles away.
The Cassini spacecraft has been busy over this past week, making close flybys of both Enceladus and and Tethys, two of Saturn's moons. And we're not using "close" as a relative term here. Cassini skimmed Enceladus in such proximity that it was literally able to taste the plume of water ice, vapour, and other organic compounds spewing from the moon's south polar region.
