Moon of the Day - Iapetus

Most people can name all the planets in the solar system. But there's a vast array of other worlds out there that you may never have even heard of, or know next to nothing about. So with that in mind, I will be selecting a Moon of the Day (when I remember). Eventually we'll move on to other astronomical objects.

Today's moon is Iapetus, a moon of Saturn. The moon is easily recognized by its stark two-tone coloration (here's the other side). Read more about it here.
