Description:

A vertical corrugation in Saturn's almost transparent D ring can give rise to brightness variations. In this graphic representation, the diagonal lines (or arrows) correspond to lines of sight through the corrugated ring. The grayscale plot along the bottom shows the ring's total optical depth (a measure of opacity) and brightness as seen by the observer. See
