  Mother and Daughter

Mother and Daughter
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: In Greek mythology, Dione was the daughter of Tethys, so we should perhaps not be surprised to see the two eponymous moons together. In reality, the moons Tethys (660 miles or 1062 kilometers across) and Dione (698 miles or 1123 kilometers across) are not mother and daughter in any sense.
