Space Imitates Star Wars.

It sure looks like the Death Star from Star Wars, but this one really IS a moon! Mimas is one of Saturn’s innermost moons. It has a crater 80 miles wide named Hershel. In this photo, taken from the Cassini orbiter, Mimas was shot in front of one of Saturn’s rings. Link to NASA information on Mimas. Link to photo information (where you can see an enlargement). -via Reddit
