That's so cool! You never see Saturn from this perspective! :)

The upper moon and central planet are half illuminated which implies a light source in the same plane as the rings at a great distance above the top of the monitor.

The lower moon is a crescent which indicates a light source somewhat behind the planet and moon system.

Usually a gas giant's moons lie in the planet's equatorial planes as do the rings. Evidently these moons are orbiting in a different plane than the rings, else their gravitational influence would make a gap in their part of the ring.

It is a beautiful design but the two things I mention make it less believable (at least to me).

Top and middle planet don't look weird to me and the lower moon is crescent only to indicate it's closer to the viewer.

Anyway, I'm not an astronomist, so I may make mistakes :)

Thanks for your comment and critics!
