Multi Moons

 

All together now...cheeeese!!! (Janus, stop fidgeting...)

 

I can’t even begin to say how many moons Cassini captured in this raw image, taken yesterday October 6! I see Epimetheus and Janus and Pan and Daphnis (I think) and…Atlas?….and…and……..is that Tethys at the bottom? I’m not sure, but what I do know is that this is a whole lot of moons caught in one shot! Is it six? Seven? More? Very cool!

UPDATE: Emily Lakdawalla at the Planetary Society’s blog identified the moons in this image! (It’s Enceladus down there at the bottom, not Tethys. Oops.)
