This is my (very rudimentary) representation of Saturn's "tiny" moon Pan hovering over New York city. The moon (more like a moonlet), believed to be formed from the accretion of ring's material, has a diameter of about 32 kilometers, thus taking approximately the air distance covering the entire island of Manhattan and beyond all the way to New Rochelle.
