The Cassini site posted this near-overhead view of the moon Pan in the Encke Gap of Saturn’s rings. The night side of the little (16 miles long) moon is lit by reflected sunshine from the planet Saturn. I think I once posted this earlier image below. It’s taken from a different angle, but this gives you an idea of scale for moon and rings, especially the relative thinness compared with even the smallest moons.
about this site
Catholic Sensibility is a personal blog by a Catholic layperson with comments and occasional other writings by Catholics and non-Catholics. We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium.
