  Tiny Tethys

Tiny Tethys

Uploader comment: Tethys may not be tiny by normal standards, but when it is captured alongside Saturn, it can't help but seem pretty small. Even Saturn's rings appear to dwarf Tethys (660 miles, or 1,062 kilometers across), which is in the upper left of the image, although scientists believe the moon to be many times more massive than the entire ring system combined.
