Rheis is the second moon of Putto.

In-Game Description

Rheis was first discovered after some discrepancies on reports regarding surface color of Putto. Some reports said that it has dark yellowish hue, yet brownish hue on others. Because of this, insults around color blindness between scientists became inevitable. To avoid further conflict, Kerbal Astronomical Society postulated that it was actually two distinct objects in the sky.
