  Another Death Star?

Another Death Star?
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: Although Mimas holds the unofficial designation of "Death Star moon," Tethys is seen here also vaguely resembling the space station from Star Wars. Apparently, Tethys doesn't want Mimas to have all the fun! For images of Mimas (246 miles, or 396 kilometers) as the Death Star, see Flying by the 'Death Star' Moon.
