Pardon me for not posting on astronomy in a while. Usually the winter is very inspiring to me: very clear skies at night, plus the snow and ice formations that seem other-worldly at times.
Above is a six-month-old image from Cassini at Saturn. The shepherd moon Prometheus casts a shadow on the main rings, if you look carefully to the right. Two gouges in the F ring (left) are prominent. Check out this video for the process.
Imagine if we had a moon and a ring interacting in this way. I wonder what kind of mythology would develop around it. How do you suppose Christian liturgy and devotion would adopt the symbolism of it?
