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.
