Landscape: Saturn is one of our gas giants. It has a rock core that is surrounded by hydrogen and helium in solid and liquid form. The outside layer is a thick cloud of gas. It is a very windy planet, which is why the outside looks streaked with color. It spins around on its axis at breakneck speed. Saturn has rings that you can see through a telescope. Its rings are only about 30 feet (10 m) wide. They are made of dusty ice chunks that orbit around Saturn. Saturn's gravity keeps the ice chunks from spreading out.
Moons: 18 moons
