In Greek mythology, Pan is the god of fields and woods and shepherds and flocks. He is usually represented as a man with the legs of a goat and also the horns and ears of a goat. His Roman counterpart is known as Sylvanus or Faunus.

Pan is also the name of one of the moons of the planet Saturn. It was, in fact, named after the Greek god Pan. It was discovered in the year 1990 by Mark R. Showalter. He discovered Pan on the basis of his analysis of the old photographs taken by the Voyager space probe.

Pan is located within the Encke division of the A Ring of Saturn. It acts as a shepherd and is mainly responsible for keeping the gap of the Encke division open. Its gravity produces patterns of waves in the rings. These indicated the presence of Pan and led to the re-examination of the photographs of its possible location, which were taken by Voyager.
