Saturn and its Moons

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second most expansive planet in the Earth’s planetary group, following Jupiter. Named following the Roman god Saturn, its galactic image (♄) speaks for the god’s sickle. Saturn is a gas mammoth with a middle range something like nine times that of Earth. While one and only one-eighth the mean thickness of Earth, with its more impressive volume Saturn is actually over 95 times more colossal than Earth.
