On Thursday, NASA released photographs of Pan, one of Saturn’s 53 confirmed moons, and its distinctive, bulging shape has viewers comparing it to a flying saucer — or ravioli.
“Saturn’s tiny moon resembles a large ravioli … Yum!” tweeted photojournalist Seph Lawless.
The images of Saturn’s innermost moon were taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, showing the form of the tiny satellite, which has an average radius of 8.8 miles. Pan rotates 83,000 miles away from Saturn and is located within the Encke Gap of Saturn’s A-ring. It orbits the planet in 13.8 hours.
Cassini’s Twitter account tweeted a gif showing the raw images.
