Ringleader
Extrasolar planet with rings, seen from an orbiting planet
Ringleader
Welcome to my hypothetical planet, Ringleader, one of my earlier attempts at astronomical art. Like Uranus in our own Solar System, it's tipped over so that its rings are are nearly perpendicular to the plane in which it orbits. Here you have a view from a moon in a polar orbit. Such an orbit occasionally affords spectacular views when the planet's rings are seen face-on in all their glory. Original acrylic for sale. Please contact me for details.
