Saturn

A Splendor Seldom Seen
Edited from NASA.gov

1.
Saturn orbits our sun and is 886 million miles from it.

2. One Saturn day takes 10.7 hours. One Saturn year takes 29 Earth years.

3. Saturn is all gas.

4. Saturn's atmosphere is mostly hydrogen (H2) and helium (He).

5. Saturn has 53 known moons

6. Saturn is made up of seven rings with several gaps and divisions between them.

7. Five missions have been sent to Saturn. Since 2004, Cassini has been exploring Saturn, its moons and rings.

8. Saturn cannot support our life although some of Saturn's moons have conditions that might support life.

9. When Galileo Galilei looked at Saturn through a telescope in the 1600s, he noticed strange objects on each side of the planet and drew in his notes a triple-bodied planet system and then later a planet with arms or handles. The handles turned out to be the rings of Saturn.
Saturn. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2014 v8n1 p0404.

Saturn is way cool. All gas, nothing solid, spinning around with lots and lots of moons. NASA reports that 53 have been identified, and another possible 9 bodies may also be moons.

This amount of moons would stretch the naming capacity of astronomers without the large number of gods and goddesses in ancient Rome and Athens. Fortunately these religions have become extinct and no-one is offending anyone by naming really cold rocks after them.
