Mimas in Shadows


Mimas, photographed by Cassini against a striking backdrop: blue clouds on Saturn's northern hemisphere, the rings casting dark bands of shadow.

(In other words: don't have enough time to blog fully today, so pretty picture instead!)

I'm glad to make the acquaintance of Mimas, is the satellite's name short for jemima?

That depends on whether you want a moon to be named after you when its most prominent feature is its gaping hole.
