A rework of PIA11668 picture.
The "straws" truly look like flat pyramids this way making it even more spectacular and unreal,
did Egyptians go to Saturn !?! smile.gif

3D rendered wide view of the rising structures of B ring.
Freshly made based on Nasa's pictures, viewed from the Cassini division, these structures made of ice particles can reach 80 km wide and culminate at 2.5 km.

Visualizing the dimensions of B ring's rising structures.
Based on Nasa's data, I made these structures 80 km wide, culminating at 2.5 km for most of them,
in comparison, this little red thing at the bottom on the right of the picture is the Eiffel tower (300 meters high),
stunning moving mountains made of ice particles !

Hello, here I am again with some new 3d renderings of these stunning rising structures orbiting fastly around Saturn, based again on the Nasa pictures made by Cassini-Huygens probe (RIP), hopefully this time with more realistic proportions as I made exactly the edge 100 km wide and the structures peaking at 2,5 km max, so from this perspective they actually look like slanted waves for the most part.

That's truly wonderful, Erik. I think of the long, slow progression in our best views of Saturn's rings, and those perspective shots with the far distance showing little and the foreground showing so much is like all the centuries are passing in a moment. Thanks for that.

Thanks for your kind feedback, I must admit I was a bit frustrated by the grand finale, not having more close-up pictures of these clumps, but maybe technically it wasn't possible at this distance... my goal was to get nearer indeed as I'm fascinated by these structures flying in space, maybe in the future it will become a famous touristic spot to visit in the solar system... wink.gif

I can definitely see a bunch of people showing up during the equinoxes to enjoy those shadows going across the rings!
