Saturn: The Latest Discoveries
Saturn, sixth planet from the sun, is the second largest planet in our solar system.
Studies shed new light on one of our solar system's strangest objects.
Streams of hot gas swirling around Saturn have been traced to two icy moons previously thought to be geologically dead worlds.
Saturnâ€™s largest ring might appear solid when viewed from Earth, but closer inspection by NASAâ€™s Cassini spacecraft reveal it is composed of tightly packed clumps of particles separated by nearly empty gaps.
Four naked-eye planets visible beginning about 45 minutes after sundown.
Tidal heating of Enceladus might be causing fractures to vent material into space.
Giant rotating storms, are the "engine" powering Saturn's jet stream winds.
Saturn's icy moon Dione may have much in common with its active sibling Enceladus.
One of the most bizarre weather patterns ever spotted has been photographed at Saturn, where astronomers have spotted a huge, six-sided feature circling the north pole.
The discovery of a new impact crater on Titan's surface, only the fourth one known, underscores the oddity that the Saturnian moon has so few craters, which leads scientists to believe the moon's surface is fairly young.
Geyser activity from Saturn's small moon Enceladus weighs down the big planet's magnetic field so much that the field rotates more slowly than Saturn itself, new observations reveal.
Astronomers have created three stunning movies of Saturn and its rings, using special techniques to extend still images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope into moving pictures that show the ringed planet in novel splendor.
The Cassini spacecraft has found evidence for seas, likely filled with liquid methane or ethane, in the high northern latitudes of Saturn's moon Titan. One such feature is larger than any of the Great Lakes of North America and is about the same size as s
Scientists believe heat from radioactive decay inside a tiny, icy Saturn moon shortly after it formed billions of years ago may explain why geysers are erupting from the surface today.
The Cassini spacecraft has captured a fresh view of Saturn from high above the planet's gorgeous rings.
