Saturn's small moon Daphnis is caught in the act of raising waves on the edges of the Keeler gap, which is the thin dark band in the left half of the image. Waves like these allow scientists to locate small moons in gaps and measure their masses.

The Cassini spacecraft captures here one of its closest views of Saturn's ring-embedded moon Daphnis. Seen at the upper left of this image, Daphnis appears in the Keeler Gap near the edge waves it has created in the A ring.

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.
