Self-Gravity Wake Structures in Saturn's A Ring Revealed byCassiniVIMS
During the summer of 2005, the Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer onboard the Cassini spacecraft observed a series of occultations of the star o Ceti ( Mira) by Saturn's rings. These observations revealed pronounced variations in the optical depth of the A ring with longitude, which can be attributed to oriented structures in the rings known as self-gravity wakes. While the wakes themselves are only tens of meters across and below the resolution of the measurements, we are able to obtaindoi:10.1086/516828 fatcat:wn44rucfuvcehmqxbbdmdkbguu
