Pacman's visit to Saturn

A space probe sent to study Saturn exposed Pacman's last minute visit to the alien planet's moon.

The probe was measuring temperature differences across the object's surface and "produced a map that looks just like the 1980s Pac-Man video games icon," according to Scientists. 

Scientists are puzzled, (big surprise), questioning why the moon, would show such variations in temperature, explaining that perhaps some surface textures could retain heat better than others. The moon is 250 miles across and has a scar called the Herschel Crater which resembles the Death Star from Star Wars, yet another funny coincidence.
