The moon in question is Mimas, and there's a huge crater in it that makes it (in some shots) look like "the Death Star" from Star Wars. However,
it's just a moon. No Darth HumVees hiding out there: www.universetoday.com...
The same thing has also been said about the Saturn moon, Iapetus. It's a moon; not an artificial satellite, but the unique feature may give some
interesting clues about how moons are formed: www.newscientist.com... news.bbc.co.uk...
The whole thing got discussed in detail during the Cassini flyby, so I'm closing the thread. Use the search for "cassini" and you'll find a lot
of interesting stuff.
