I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday

I know I posed a Cassini image of Saturn just a few weeks ago, but I can't resist this one: Saturn's moon Hyperion. This small (approximately 250 kilometers across—small for a moon) strange object looks to me like something I might pick up on the beach, and so I suppose in a way, it's not strange at all. Unlike so much of what we're able to see in the universe now, it looks almost familiar.
