Saturn's Moon Resembles the 'Death Star'

Saturn's Moon Resembles the 'Death Star'

A new image from NASA's Cassini probe is raising eyebrows among sci fi fans for its eerie resemblance to the infamous Death Star from the Star Wars films.

The unsettling celestial body, dubbed 'Tethys,' is one of Saturn's icy moons and measures about 660 miles across.

With its enormous crater positioned in just the right spot when photographed by the spacecraft, the moon looks remarkably similar to the monstrous weapon at the center of the epic space opera.

While it is almost certainly not a fabricated space ship designed to destroy planets and wreak havoc across the universe, we know just the right creature to send to Tethys should that be the case: the Skywalker gibbon, of course.
