The Ringed Moon
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has found evidence of material orbiting Rhea, Saturn’s second largest moon. This is the first time rings may have been found around a moon.

A broad debris disk and at least one ring appear to have been detected by a suite of six instruments on Cassini specifically designed to study the atmospheres and particles around Saturn and its moons.

    So much to be learned from those moons. What a varied and wonderful worlds all around.

    Do you think maybe we have developed a fine ring around us?
