Saturn: The Latest Discoveries
Saturn, sixth planet from the sun, is the second largest planet in our solar system.
NASA's Cassini mission beamed back stunning imagery of a swirling storm on the ringed planet on November 27th, 2012.
Saturn and Venus will bright and appear extremely close together in the pre-dawn Tuesday sky.
Saturn and Venus will appear so close they can be seen in the same telescope view.
Galileo discovered Io, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto, Jupiter’s four largest moons in 1610. Even today their varied characteristics fascinate astronomers. From giant volcanoes to sub-surface seas, Jupiter's moons are like planets unto themselves.
Saturn's moon Mimas appears near Saturn, dwarfed by its parent planet in this space wallpaper.
Saturn's gorgeous rings are on display alongside the tiny moon Mimas.
This month will see Saturn and Venus come very close to one another in the night sky, the mid-month peak of the Leonid meteor shower, solar eclipse in Australia and more.
The NASA spacecraft had delivered spectacular imagery of Saturn and its moons. It launched in 1997 and has been exploring the system since 2004.
Storms can exist on any planet with an atmosphere, even the sun.
The storm, which was first observed in December 2010, was even more powerful than researchers had thought.
The Great White Spot storm on Saturn has set a record for the biggest temperature shift, according to planetary scientist Brigette Hesman working with NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
The half-dozen icy satellites may have been spawned by a merger of bigger bodies that created Saturn's huge moon Titan.
A NASA spacecraft has spied a cracked mound that resembles a hot cross bun on Saturn's moon Titan.
Cassini will keep studying Saturn and its many moons until 2017.
The findings are based on a new analysis of a nearly eight-year-old spacecraft landing.
in 2005, the Huygens Probe took about 10 seconds to finally come to a rest on the surface of the Saturn Moon. 'Fluffy' dust-like material shot up off the surface for about 4 seconds after landing.
Many astronomers and astrobiologists think that Titan – with its thick atmosphere of methane and liquid hydrocarbon lakes – could harbor some form of life. 50% larger than Earth’s moon and 80% more massive, Titan is an analog to the early Earth.
