Saturn’s rings are made of mainly ice, the ice can be from dust size to 10ft in diameter.

There are seven main rings around Saturn, the rings are named by letters. The names go in order of discovery.

saturn s formation of its rings
Scientists believe that a long time ago a moon or other large object got too close to Saturn, the body broke in to millions of pieces. After time the pieces started orbiting Saturn. After even more time, the pieces became rings.Saturn’s formation of its rings

Saturn’s known as’ “The Jewel of our Solar System ”


I chose Saturn because I thought that Saturn was very unique and interesting. I thought that the most surprising thing was that Saturn’s moons Escalades and Titan could support certain life. I would love to keep researching Saturn because Saturn has so many secrets that I personally want to find out. (Also, because of this project, I will maybe want to be a scientist and an astronomer.)
