Why are the rings of each gas giant planet closer to the planet than its large moons are?

The rings are made up of small debree and therefor are on a tight close orbit around the planet. The large moons are the opposite because they are large and therefor on a much further out orbit. The sun has a gravitational pull on all things in our solar system and its pull is much larger on the moon and it keeps it further away from the sun.

Beautiful rings ( saturns rings are made of moons that were smashed because of saturns gravity. Has 62 moons.Uranus - Axis is at 97 degrees. Which it means it is rotating on its side. Has 24 moons.Neptune - One Neptune year lasts 165 Earth years!Like Jupiter, Neptune has a dark spot caused by a storm.
