Fly me to the moon ...

Photo (c) NASA/JPL/Space Science InstituteA Roman emperor hunting for a topic to begin a new year naturally seizes upon Janus, the god of doorways.

But did you know that the planet Saturn has a moon named Janus?

This photo, property of NASA, was taken by the Cassini spacecraft in 2006, two years into its 4-year mission.

Truly an amazing image to start the new year.
