Epimetheus is the fifth satellite of Saturn and at only 70 miles (113 kilometers across) is too small to have sufficient self-gravity to form itself into a round shape.

Epimetheus, seen here with Saturn in the background, looks lumpy and misshapen, thanks in part to its size and bombardment over the eons has left this tiny moon’s surface heavily pitted.

This oblong moon orbits 94,000 miles (151,000 km) away from Saturn, taking 17 hours to circle the planet.

This image was captured by NASA’s Cassini Orbiter at a distance of approximately 1,670 miles (2,690 kilometers) from Epimetheus.
