The irregularly shaped moon Janus keeps up its lonely orbit as seen by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. Even though Janus shares its orbit with the moon Epimetheus, they never get very close to one another.

The Cassini spacecraft catches a glimpse of Janus, an irregularly shaped moon. Lacking sufficient gravity to pull itself into a round shape, Janus has had its lumpy primordial shape only slightly modified by impacts since its formation.
