  1. Scientists Witness Possible Birth of New Saturn Moon

    While Saturn has developed many new moons over the years, scientists have never been able to see it happen — until now. They say they are witnessing what could be the birth of a new moon — informally named Peggy — amongst the rings orbiting the planet. Peggy is thought to be approximately half a mile in diameter and made of ice. The question now is whether Peggy stays in the orbit of the rings, potentially colliding with other particles of ice and falling apart, or escapes to go the way of Saturn’s 62 other, more substantial moons.
