Saturn's moons Tethys and Hyperion appear to be near neighbors in this view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, even though they are actually 930,000 miles apart here. Tethys is the larger body on the left.

Saturn's moon Tethys appears to float between two sets of rings in this view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, but it's just a trick of geometry. The rings, which are seen nearly edge-on, are the dark bands above Tethys.
