Epimetheus, Prometheus, Saturn and its rings
Befitting moons named for brothers, the moons Prometheus and Epimetheus share a lot in common. Both are small, icy moons that orbit near the main rings of Saturn. But, like most brothers, they also assert their differences: while Epimetheus is relatively round for a small moon, Prometheus is elongated in shape, similar to a lemon.

Although Mimas holds the unofficial designation of 'Death Star moon,' Tethys is seen here also vaguely resembling the space station from Star Wars.
