On Tuesday (April 12), Cassini snapped the best-ever photos of SATURN's bizarre moon ATLAS, whose humped middle and broad equatorial ridge make it look like a flying saucer. (The "ravioli" moon, by the way, is the Saturn satellite Pan, although some people think it looks more like an empanada.)

Kepler-186f ~ The first known Earth-size planet to lie within the habitable zone of a star beyond the Sun. Discovered using data from the prolific planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft, the distant world orbits its parent star, a cool, dim, M dwarf star about half the size and mass of the Sun, some 500 light-years away from us, in the constellation Cygnus. While the size and orbit of Kepler-186f are known, its mass and composition are not, and can't be determined by Kepler's transit technique…

That electrical current was discovered near galaxy 3C303. It's not doing anything that cool ... it's just firing a massive jet of electrified matter 150,000 light-years into outer space.

This image looks like it can't possibly be real, but it is. Taken back in 2006 when the Cassini spacecraft was orbiting the sixth planet, this photo captures a nighttime view of Saturn as light sparkles off of its rings.

Quite possibly the most beautiful photo of Saturn ever taken
