This image in comparison to http://www.ciclops.org/view_media/37585/F-Ring-Zoo raises the question, to what extent is there uniformity of motion of the particles in the F ring? Is the separation a result of the motion by Prometheus or is the converse true instead where this image is actually depicting a magnetic force causing the periodic collisions.
