Anubis exhibits rings, like most of the gaseous planets in our solar
system. The rings are optically thin, which means that very little
material is present and most of the light passes through. The faint and
almost undetectable rings have a small optical depth, which measures the
transparency of the ring system. The rings contain bends, kinks, and
clumps that give the illusion that the strands are
They are composed mainly of ice and traces of carbon minerals and dust. The radial distance from the core of Anubis was observed to be 175,600 km to the ansa, which is the portion of the ring that is the farthest from the planet. This would lead us to believe that there are satellites or moons as yet to be discovered. Because we know that there must be sheppard satellites in order to have rings.
Rings are held together from the particles pulling themselves together via their own gravity, while the planet tries to tug the ring inward. At the same time, the satellites pull the particles outward. The combination of the planet and the satellite tugging on the particle keep the rings in orbit with the planet.
The distance which separates the regions where rings exist from the region where satellites form is called the Roche Limit. The Roche Limit is defined by
