Earth went between Saturn and the sun yesterday, so now is the best time to photograph the planet. Scott MacNeill captured this photo of Saturn. He wrote: “… at Frosty Drew Observatory on a super clear night. This photograph showcases the Cassini Division and the elusive Encke Gap.” Thank you, Scott! See Saturn: http://bit.ly/17qDBP5

SURVEY: In our next issue of Discover, we dive into the wild topic of exoplanet naming conventions. However, there's a debate about "official names" versus names people buy. What do you think? Should people be able to buy planetary naming rights? http://on.fb.me/1fFi6iO

Exoplanets

Four Moons of Saturn! Two pairs of moons make a rare joint appearance. The F ring's shepherd moons, Prometheus and Pandora, appear just inside and outside of the F ring (the thin faint ring furthest from Saturn). Meanwhile, farther from Saturn the co-orbital moons Janus (near the bottom) and Epimetheus (about a third of the way down from the top) also are captured. This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 47 degrees above the ringplane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on Oct. 11, 2013. The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 810,000 miles (1.3 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 47 degrees. Image scale is 47 miles (76 kilometers) per pixel. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute #nasa #saturn #moons #cassini @spacecraft #exploration #solarsystem #science
