Hi Gang,

This is just one of those images that make you realise just why we need to keep the exploration of the solar system going. This image from CASSINI shows two of Saturn's moon Dione and Enceladus. The moons are composed of the same materials (almost!) and should look the same in the sky. You can see in the image that Dione is considerably darker. Find out why here http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/jpl/pia18345/a-brighter-moon

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
