Captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, the waves that Saturn's moon, Daphnis, raises on the edges of the Keeler Gap, can also be used to deduce the moon's mass and even some of its orbital behavior.

This image taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows that rather than being an unchanging disk of peaceful particles, the material that makes up Saturn's rings is constantly pushed and pulled into spectacular shapes. At left is the moon Daphnis.
