Saturn is the 6th planet from the Sun. It is so far out, it is over a billion miles from Earth.
Saturn is much like Jupiter, but smaller. Saturn is still very large, over 9 times larger than Earth.
Saturn has at least 15 moons. The moon Titan is one of the largest moons in the solar system,
about the size of the planet Mercury.
The Ring System:
Saturn has yellow, gray and brown clouds that form belts or rings around it. Saturn is best known
for these rings. These rings are made up of a large number of small particles. The different colors of
the rings are the result of the different materials or particles making up the ring.
