Saturn’s moon Pandora up close
This image from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft is one of the highest-resolution views ever taken of Saturn’s moon Pandora.
Pandora (52 miles, 84 kilometers) across, is an inner satellite of Saturn. It was discovered in 1980 from photos taken by the Voyager 1 probe, and in 1985 was officially named after Pandora from Greek mythology.
The image was taken from a distance of approximately 25,200 miles (40,500 kilometers) from Pandora. The spacecraft captured the image during its closest-ever flyby on Dec. 18, 2016.
