Dione was the daughter of Tethys in Greek mythology. In the real world, Saturn’s moons Tethys and Dione are not mother and daughter. They are more like sisters since they’re believed to have formed out of the same disk around Saturn.
Dione is the upper moon in the picture; Tethys is the lower.

Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.You know, I kinda miss reading some of their outrageous forecasts of doom for me and other bloggers who had the temerity to write about The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Publisher Kimberlin. Perhaps the Gentle Reader will remember the pointage, laughery, and mockification that resulted from such silly posts as this—Meanwhile, this blog continues, and the former editor of BU is having a second winter vacation up north.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
I think so, Brain … but when one these posts bombs, at least no one is laughing at me.

We see the galaxies around us in various orientations. NGC 5468 is a spiral galaxy which we see with an almost dead-on top-down view. Over the last couple of decades, NGC 5468 has hosted a number of supernovae: SN 1999cp, SN 2002cr, SN2002ed, SN2005P and SN2018dfg. Despite being just over 130 million light-years away, the face-on orientation of the galaxy with respect to us makes it easier to spot such new “stars” as they appear.
