Epimetheus, seen here by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, with Saturn in the background, is lumpy and misshapen, thanks in part to its size and formation process. Bombardment over the eons has left this tiny moon's surface heavily pitted.

Although Epimetheus appears to be lurking above the rings here, it's actually just an illusion resulting from the viewing angle of NASA's Cassini spacecraft. In reality, Epimetheus and the rings both orbit in Saturn's equatorial plane.
