You may have noticed an amusing new image floating around the blogosphere: the latest Cassini Equinox snapshot of one of Saturn's moons, Mimas, looking for all the world like a fluorescent-hued Pac-Man. What are we looking at here? Well, these two images compare what Mimas looks like in ordinary visible light, while the other is shows the unexpected sharply varying temperatures across the moon's surface, based on the latest data from Cassini's composite infrared spectrometer. There's a sharp v-shaped "hot zone" boundary that looks remarkably like Pac-Man, especially since it's "mouth" is on the verge of gobbling the famed Herschel Crater.
