Three new moons discovered around Saturn by the Cassini spacecraft have been given provisional names.






The discoveries were made last year, not long after Cassini had arrived in orbit around the ringed planet. Two moons detected in August have been given the names Methone and Pallene, while another found in October has been provisionally named Polydeuces. Three more candidate objects are still awaiting confirmation as moons. Methone and Pallene circle Saturn between the orbits of two other Saturnian moons, Mimas and Enceladus. Polydeuces is an example of a so-called Trojan moon - it is twinned with a larger satellite in orbit around the planet.

This news was from back in 2005, nothing new but i didn't see it posted here.

I just find it amazing that we continue to discover things that we didnt know existed even in our solar system.

I dont know what the odds are, but if we continue to discover maybe well get lucky
