A kinky F-Ring animation

NASA has released an animation of Saturn's F-ring clearly resolving several individual ringlets and the kinks, knots and clumps of material that make up the ring. Fascinating! The full size animation is definetely worth a look!

NASA has also finally released a slightly enhanced image of the shepherd moon Prometheus interacting with the F-ring material, which I first posted here back on 2 November 2004.
