Saturn (1430 words)
The gap between the A and B rings is known as the Cassini division.
They are prominent in the Cassini images which also show some as yet unexplained wispy spiral structures.
This categorization is actually somewhat misleading as the density of particles varies in a complex way not indicated by a division into neat regions: there are variations within the rings; the gaps are not entirely empty; the rings are not perfectly circular.
Rings of Saturn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1174 words)
The Cassini Division is a 4,800 km (2,980 mile) region between the A Ring and B Ring.
Its inner boundary is the Cassini Division and its sharp outer boundary is the orbit of the small moon Atlas.
The division is centered at a distance 133,580 kilometers from Saturn's center, and has a width of 325 kilometers.
