It Reminds Me...Of Something...

What Is It?

from Sploid

A bizarre pear-shaped object has been photographed zooming around Saturn by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

The Cassini mission has already captured striking images of the ringed planets many moons, but this strange thing has yet to be identified.

Beyond its weird pear shape, the enigma has a single "eye."

Only this cryptic explanation was offered on the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory site where the image appears:

"N00061934.jpg was taken on May 23, 2006 and received on Earth May 24, 2006. The camera was pointing toward TETHYS at approximately 509,689 kilometers away, and the image was taken using the CL1 and CL2 filters. This image has not been validated or calibrated. A validated/calibrated image will be archived with the NASA Planetary Data System in 2007."

The space thing was photographed in other positions, as well.

Oh, of course. It's the Shmoo.
