Yes, and astronomers noted that the first time they saw it. It's a huge crater that's over 1/3 the size of the moon and they think the impact almost shattered it.

Awesome pics. I love astronomy, so they are all fascinating to me.

Awesome! Thanks for the link!
Another cool site to visit is
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html
if you're into space, you could spend lots of time on this site, plus there's lots of wallpaper material in there.

The craziest thing is the amount of water that appears to be on Saturn, granted in ice form. Sounds like they basically have erupting ice volcanoes.
