Transcript of Saturn

SATURN Saturn's Rings Greek/Roman Connections The Distance From The Sun Saturn's distance is 1.4 billion km. (average distance is 1, 433, 449, 370 km, or 891 million miles.) saturn's elliptically orbit around the sun and the closest point is 1.35 billion km (astronomers call it perihelion) and farthest point at 1. 5 billion km. (aphelion) In Roman mythology, Saturn is the god of agriculture. He is known as Cronus in Greek mythology. Cronus was the father of Zeus (Jupiter). Saturn is the root of the English word "Saturday." Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun, and the second largest of the nine planets Like Jupiter, Saturn has bands . Saturn's bands, however, are much fainter. The bands are also much wider near the equator. Saturn has long-lived "spots" as well. Just like Jupiter's "Great Red Spot," they are areas where big storms are occurring.
Saturn’s has a diameter of 120,536 km, 9.44 times that of Earth Did you know that Saturn is the second largest planet in our solar system? Earth can fit across Saturn 9 times.

Did you know that the day Saturday was named after Saturn?

Did you know that Saturn gives off more heat that it absorbs/gets from the sun?

Did you know that Saturn's rings are the only ones that can be seen from earth? Diameter Saturn's Rings Revolution What is Saturn's Surface Made Out Of? Saturns moons are, Epimetheus, Janus, Pallene, Methone, mimas, pandora, prometheus, atlas, pan, Enceladus, Telesto, tenthys, calypso, polydeuces, aione, helene, lapetys, titan, hyperion, rhea, Phoebe, Ljiraq, kiviuq, Ymir, Suttung, Thrym, Mundilfori, Norv, Tarvos, Siarraq, Erriapus, albiorix,Skathi, Paaliop Saturn has a revolution of 10hs 39min 24seconds Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun Saturn's surface is made out of, organic- rich atmosphere and surface , de- coupled icy shell, global subsurfce ocean, high- pressure ice, and hydrous silicate core. Saturn is made up of gases 94% hydrogen, 6% helium and small amounts of methane and ammonia. Titan is the second largest moon in the solar system. Lapetus, has one side as bright as snow and another side as dark as night. Mimas, has an enormous crater in the side of it. Enceladus displays evidence of active ice volcanism. Hyperion has a flattened shape. Characteristics of Some of The Moons Saturn's Placement from the Sun Some of Saturn's Moons Saturn's rings are made of billions of pieces of ice,
dust and rocks. Some of these particles are as
small like a grain of salt, while others can be as big
as houses. These chunks of rock and ice are
thought to be pieces of comets, asteroids or even
moons which were torn apart by the strong gravity
of Saturn before they could reach the planet. Saturn's Rings By: Julia.V, Emily,
Karlo, and Ashton For Saturn to spin one full turn on its axis which is 844.3 degrees it would take 10 hours and 14 Earth minutes. For Saturn to orbit around the sun it would take more than 29 Earth years. Rotation Unique Information Saturn's Moons
