A NASA probe snapped a picture of one of Saturn’s moons that looks a lot like a flying saucer.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft snapped a photo of the moon, Pan, from just 15,268 miles away. This image is the closest picture ever taken of Pan.

Pan is a small moon, only 21 miles across and shaped like a walnut. It’s so small that Pan wasn’t detected until 1990.
