Pan the Moon

If you're into astronomy, then you've probably already seen the newest pictures from Cassini of Saturn's moon Pan.  That's the little moon that orbits inside the Encke Gap of Saturn's rings.  I've seen the pictures, and they're remarkable.  Pan is an interesting object.

I think the actual scientific term for it is weird.

Anyway, there have been numerous articles about it, because of Pan's high level of weirdness.  So here's one, and one of the new pictures.

In new Cassini portraits, Saturn's moon Pan looks like pasta
