Saturn's tiny moon friend, Daphnis, is finally getting its close-up. In a stunning new image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, the elusive moon can be seen peeking out from within the Keeler gap of Saturn's rings. According to NASA, the image was taken in visible (green) light by Cassini's narrow-angle camera.

Space is a freaky place, and few people understand that as well as NASA software engineer Kevin Gill. He regularly uses real data to inspire works of art he renders using complicated computer software. In the past, he has created visualisations of what Mars would look like if it were inhabited and what Earth would look like if it had rings. Now, he's released a series of images that show Saturn's moon Daphnis and its unusual relationship with the planet's rings.
