SPACE, SPACE: This August 1998 NASA file image shows a true color photo of Saturn assembled from Voyager 2 spacecraft. Three of Saturn's moons L-R: Tethys, 1,050 km. (652 mi.) in diameter; Dione, 1,120 km. (696 mi.); and Rhea, 1,530 km. (951 mi.) are seen in the image. The shadow of Tethys appears on Saturn's southern hemisphere. NASA announced 17 August, 2004 that the Cassini-Huygens space probe discovered two new moons around Saturn, which could be the smallest ever spotted around the ringed planet, NASA officials said Tuesday. The moons, measuring three and four kilometers (about two miles) in diameter, are located 194,000 and 211,000 kilometers (120,500 and 131,000 miles), respectively, from Saturn. They have been temporarily named S/2004 S1 and S/2004 S2. AFP PHOTO/NASA (Photo credit should read HO/AFP via Getty Images)
