Saturn's 60th moon discovered
The new object was first seen as a faint dot in a series of images taken by the Cassini spacecraft on the 30th May 2007. Astronomers then looked through older images from Cassini and were able to confirm that it was indeed a previously undiscovered moon. S/2007 S4 is located between the orbits of the moons Methone and Pallene, putting it about 200,000 km from Saturn. This is roughly half the distance that our own Moon is away from Earth.
