Data from the deceased Cassini spacecraft offers astronomers an unconventional way to measure the optical depth of Saturn's rings.
A collision between two ancient icy moons that may have once orbited Saturn could have given rise to the planet's iconic ring system, a new study reveals.
Using the James Webb Space Telescope, astronomers have observed the changing of seasons on Saturn. The ringed planet's northern summer is cooling as a 7.5-year-long autumn approaches.
