Ring B Composition[edit]

Unless it's an astronomical/physical term I'm unfamiliar with, I'm going to guess that whoever said "B ring is made of snot" just has a very bad sense of humor. -- Raveled

Huygens Gap[edit]

This is a great page to get detail information on the ring systems of Saturn. This is the best detail that I have found. Thank you for putting so much effort and info into it. It is appreciated. I have a questions about the Huygens Gap. The page text may indicate that the Huygens Gap separates the B Ring from the Cassini Division. If so, I am confused by the distances reflected on the table. The table shows the Cassini Division beginning where the B Ring ends. Doesn't the Huygens Gap begin where the B Ring ends and the Cassini Division begin when the Huygens Gap ends? If so, then the distances and widths may need to be updated. In addition, the widths indicated for the Huygens Gap (even the lesser at 285 km) seem to conflict with the outer boundary of the B Ring (i.e., the B Ring would overlap the gap). BTW: The table indicates 4700 for the Cassini Gap width, but the text indicates 4800. Thanks again for a great page. It has been very helpful to me. Tesseract501 30 May 2006

Ring Rain[edit]

How can the new data concerning so-called ring rain be incorporated here?
