Astronomers are anticipating the birth of a new Saturn moon. It was revealed by NASA’S Cassini spacecraft. The Los Angeles Times describes it a “fuzzy blob” which lies close to one of the planet’s rings. The Astronomers are however not sure whether the possible moon nicknamed as “Peggy” actually exists or not. This will be confirmed when Cassini will have a closer look of it in the coming year. The planet seems a bit old hat at this, with fifty three moons already confirmed and nine doubted ones.
The astronomers are yet to experience the process. Carl Murray, one of the astronomers at Queen Marry University of London, says “We may be looking at the act of birth, where this object is just leaving the rings and heading off to be a moon in its own right. We have not seen anything like this before.” He used the name “Peggy” in regard to his mother-in-law, who reached 80 the day when he examined the Cassini images for the first time. This heavenly object is relatively small with a width of about half a mile and further dominated by bigger moons, like Enceladus which was found to have a big underground ocean.
