I mean sure, lets just ignore that we are seeing moons form in Saturns rings right now so we can pretend like this is cooler than it really is. I mean why would you want to see the up close version when you can see the far away super fuzzy one right?

The thread-sh*tter is also too damn stupid to realize that the rings are too close to Saturn to ever coalesce into a satellite.

Thanks sub. That's one hell of a shot from this distance.

I constantly marvel at some of the images obtained with modern scopes, but I'm an old farker who remembers fuzzy images of the past
