What would it look like to watch Daphnis fly past?

Maybe something like THIS:

Daphnis by Erik Svensson (All rights reserved)

What a great combination: Daphnis (my favorite moon) and an artist’s interpretation of what it might look like to see it whiz past as it travels around Saturn inside the Keeler Gap, sending up waves in the rings as it goes! The image is by Erik Svensson, who came across my recent article on Universe Today and was reminded of an illustration he’d made a year ago.

After contacting me about it, I felt Erik’s work definitely belonged in the article as well as here on Lights in the Dark!

Read the article on Daphnis here, and see more of Erik’s work here.
