  Small Moon Makes Big Waves

Small Moon Makes Big Waves
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: 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.
