The close-up and highest-resolution image of Saturn's moon ' Pandora' has been captured by US space agency NASA. According to the space agency, the image of Saturn's moon ' Pandora' was captured in green light using Cassiniâ€™s narrow-angle camera, at a scale of 787 feet (240 meters) per pixel.Pandoraâ€™s scars and craters come alive.
Pandora is one of Saturnâ€™s many baby moons, far too runny to form a sphere under its own gravity. Instead, this 52-mile across space rock looks more like a fossilised glob of silly putty in closest image ever captured by NASAâ€™s Cassini spacecraft.
Earlier, NASA has revealed another spectacular image from the Cassini data that appeared to show Saturnâ€™s moon Mimas crashing through its rings which was just an optical illusion.
In the incredible image, Mimas is actually 28,000 miles (45,000 kilometres) away from the rings.
'There is a strong connection between the icy moon and Saturn's rings, though,' NASA said.
'Gravity links them together and shapes the way they both move.'
Cassini is currently circling Saturnâ€™s poles and skirting just outside the gas giantâ€™s F-ring, in a series of dramatic â€œring-grazingâ€ orbits that
NASA promised would give us an unprecedented look at some of Saturnâ€™s smallest moons. And the spacecraft is already delivering on that promise. The image above was captured on December 18th, from a distance of just 25,200 miles (40,500 kilometres) from the moon Pandora.Â
