Saturn’s peculiar moon Pan pictured

The Cassini probe has revealed Saturn’s inner-most moon Pan in all its peculiar glory. The spacecraft took the highest resolution images yet of the extraordinary, ravioli-shaped moon on 7 March 2017 from a distance of 24,572 kilometres (15,268 miles). The moon orbits within the Enke gap of Saturn’s A-ring, a 325 kilometre (200 mile) wide band that the moon sweeps clean as it orbits the gas giant every 13.8 hours.
