Saturn the Mighty

Saturn is by far my favoutie planet. Even as a child I loved it’s majestic rings. The world seems mysteriously hidden under it’s subtly changing clouds. It’s like it doesn’t want to put on too much of a show, almost a “take me as you find me planet.”

Over recent years as the human race has studied Saturn close up, more and more of it’s secrets have been revealed. As with other gas giants it has storms and features. Moons hidden by the rings suddenly found.

Jupiter may be the king od our local planets, with it’s size and grandeur, but I think the Saturn is the queen and a queen deserves attention and respect far more. This latest piece on Saturn from NASA is short, but I wanted to share it:
