Hyperion: Also known as Saturn VII, is a moon of Saturn. It is distinguished by its irregular shape, its chaotic rotation, and its unexplained sponge-like appearance. It was the first non-round (irregular) moon to be discovered. The moon is named after Hyperion, the Titan god of watchfulness and observation - the elder brother of Cronus, the Greek equivalent of Saturn - in Greek Mythology. Hyperion is one of the largest bodies known to be highly irregular (non-spherical) in the solar system. The only moon larger than it that is known to be irregular in shape is Neptune's moon Proteus. Hyperion has about 15% of the mass of Mimas, the least massive spherical body. A possible explanation for the irregular shape is that Hyperion is a fragment of a larger body that was broken by a large impact in the distant past.
