Saturn Moon: Telesto!

An image of Telesto.


Telesto travels along the same path as Calypso at a distance of 294,660 km. It was discovered by Bradford A. Smith, Harold J. Reitsema, Stephen M. Larson, and John W. Fountain at the Univ of Arizona in 1981 from ground-based observations. Telesto is also co-orbital with Tethys so the moons are called the Tethys Trojans because they travel around Saturn in the orbit of Tethys. Telesto is 60 degrees ahead while Calypso is 60 degrees behind.
