Planet Saturn may be having a new Moon?
by flukky01 « on: April 17, 2014, 08:01:17 AM »




 Images taken by Nasa could have caught Saturn in the process of giving birth to another moon.

Scientists at the American space agency are examining the photographs produced by the Cassini spacecraft.

These include a small icy object at the edge of Saturn’s outermost main ring, which has been compared to a baby bump.

This bump is 750 miles long, six miles wide, but the actual “baby” is probably no more than around half a mile in diameter. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/10770800/New-moon-spotted-on-Saturn.html
