Saturn’s Moons Are Cuter Than Sugarplum Fairies

We love Cassini more with every amazing image the intrepid spacecraft sends back from its travels, and this latest treat is no exception.

The Cassini imaging team has assembled images of some of Saturn’s moons in action into this sequence, bringing another corner of the solar system to life for us. It’s still unclear to us whether setting the video to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite adds to or subtracts from its appeal, but that’s what the mute button is for.

Our only complaint is that Enceladus doesn’t make an appearance, but we have a separate tribute to our favorite Saturnian moon planned, so stay tuned.
