Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency (ESA) shows two of Saturn’s moons that appear to look like a giant snowman.

The two separate moons, Dione and Rhea, actually orbit Saturn at different distances even though they look as though they are conjoined.

The image was captured on July 27, 2010 by the international Cassini spacecraft.
