Therings of Saturn are 270,000 km in diameter, but only a few hundred meters thick. Particles are centimeters to decameters in size and are ice; there are traces of silicate and carbon minerals. There four main ring groups and three more faint,narrow ring groups called divisions.

Saturn the Roman God

Saturn (Sower) is closely connected with Demeter (Ceres) and his worship continued at Rome along with that of Zeus or Jupiter. He was an ancient Roman god of fertility, especially of agriculture. He was believed to be the deity who had introduced agriculture and with it civilization and government. He carried a sickle as his symbol. Saturn was worshiped in a winter festival called the Saturnalia and his name was/is used for the day of the week, Saturday.

Saturn Quick Facts

The gas giant Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system after its big brother Jupiter. Saturn has more than twenty satellites. The biggest is Titan, the solar system’s second largest moon. Larger than Mercury, it has an atmosphere denser than that of any other moon in the Solar System. Like so many other phenomena in the solar system, the rings of Saturn were first seen by Galileo. In 1610, he saw two bright spots on either side of the planet.

This concludes my project on the planet of Saturn. I hope that you enjoyed it.
