NASA images show Saturn's bizarre 'wavemaker' moon Daphnis A stunning new image whitehall jewelry from NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows the closest view yet of Saturn's 'wavemaker' mini moon Daphnis as it creates ripples along inside one of the planet's rings.
The 5 mile wide moon orbits within a 26 mile wide gap known as the Keeler Gap, and its gravity causes the edges to 'wave' in both the horizontal and vertical directions. A stunning new image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows the closest view yet of Saturn's 'wavemaker' mini moon Daphnis as it creates ripples along the Keeler Gap THE KEELER GAP The Keeler Gap is roughly 26 miles wide and lies in Saturn's A Ring, about 155 miles from the outer edge. Daphnis induces a wavy pattern in the edge of the Keeler Gap that extends nearly a mile above the ring. According to NASA, the image was taken as Cassini passed over the outer edges of Saturn's rings on January 16, 2017. A ridge seen around Daphnis' equator, along with a 'fairly smooth' mantle of material on the surface. This is thought to be an accumulation of fine particles from the rings. The softened appearance of the wave peak is likely the result of ring particles' movement as they spread out into the gap after the moon's last close approach, NASA explains. The Cassini Division is a distance between two of Saturn's rings, A and B. It is almost as wide as the planet Mercury. The 2,980 mile (4,800 kilometre) wide division is thought to be caused by pandora australia online store the moon Mimas, which is the closest moon to the planet (shown on diagram) With the entire northern region bathed in pandora jewelery sunlight, the planet's hexagon shaped jet stream can be seen in stunning detail. The view was captured on Sept 9 at roughly 750,000 miles from Saturn, giving scientists a chance to study the weather patterns leading up to its summer solstice. According to NASA, areas where the planet appears darker like the inside of the hexagon are where the cloud deck is lower. The image, captured with Cassini's wide angle camera, looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 51 degrees above the ring plane. A breathtaking new image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows Saturn's north pole in a whole new light. With the entire northern region bathed in sunlight, the planet's hexagon shaped jet stream can be seen in stunning detail WHAT IT SHOWS The image shows a view of Saturn's north pole, looking toward the sunlit side of the rings, at roughly 750,000 miles from the planet. Areas where the planet appears darker like the inside of the where to buy pandora jewelry online hexagon are where the cloud deck is lower. The hexagonal jet stream can be seen as well. The camera used a spectral filter that preferentially admits wavelengths of near infrared light centered at 728 nanometers, according to NASA. 'Sunlight truly has come to Saturn's north pole,' the space agency explained. 'The whole northern region is bathed in sunlight in this view from late 2016, feeble though the light may be at Saturn's distant domain in the solar system.' The stunning image is at a scale of 46 miles per pixel. It's just one of the latest in a series of remarkable photos captured by the Cassini spacecraft. The craft recently revealed a close up view of Saturn's moon Pandora.
It's one of the highest resolution views yet, showing the 52 mile wide moon that orbits just outside the F ring SATURN'S MOONS MAY BE YOUNGER THAN THE DINOSAURS While Saturn's rings and moons were first spotted in 1600s, there is an ongoing debate about how old they are. Many assume that they are primordial as old as the planet itself making them around four billion years old. However, evidence published last month suggests the majority of its moons are significantly younger than this and may have even formed at the same time dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
