Calypso: Sandblasted Trojan Moon of Saturn

Calypso is one of the four Trojan moons of planet Saturn. Calypso is co-orbital with the moon Tethys and resides in Tethys' leading Lagrangian point (L4). It's surface is very reflective due to E-ring sandblasting action, and has one of the highest albedos in the solar system.

For a listing of all moons, see Moons of the Planets.
