These figures show the discovery images of the new Saturn satellite S/2003 S1 taken at the Subaru 8.3 meter telescope about 1hour 38 minutes apart on UT February 5, 2003. The motion of the satellite clearly stands out compared to the steady background of stars and galaxies. The two images on the left are the same as those on the right, but without identifying circles. Each panel is about 40 arcseconds wide. Saturn is not in the field, but is one degree to the West (right) of these images.
