Saturn distance from sun

Astrological Planets –There are eight planets in the Solar System. In order of increasing distance from the Sun, they are the four terrestrials, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, then the four gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. Pluto was discredited by some...but I'm not buying it! lol

In Western astrology, the location and movements of the astrological planets, sun and moon are major influences of the traits associated with the zodiac signs. The exact position of the planets,…

Pluto's giant moon Charon may have had a buried ocean. In July of 2015, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft will be the first to visit Pluto and Charon, and will provide the most detailed observations to date.

If the icy surface of Pluto's giant moon Charon is cracked, analysis of the fractures could reveal if its interior was warm, perhaps warm enough to have maintained a subterranean ocean of liquid water, according to a new NASA-funded study.

♥ Current solar system ~ although we may not experience it - I love the use of the term " current". Lol Tjh

Want to feel humble and completely insignificant? Stop for a moment and think, just think, how tiny Earth is in our Solar System, and it is but a dust mite in the Universe!

The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on April 13, 2017. The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 502,000 miles (808,000 kilometers) from Enceladus and at a sun-Enceladus-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 176 degrees.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has photographed the farthest active inbound comet ever seen, at a whopping distance of 1.5 billion miles from the Sun (beyond Saturn’s orbit). Slightly warmed by the remote Sun, it has already begun to develop an 80,000-mile-wide fuzzy cloud of dust, called a coma, enveloping a tiny, solid nucleus of frozen gas and dust.

Uranus is the third largest planet in the Solar System. The atmosphere of Uranus is composed of hydrogen, helium, and methane. The methane in the atmosphere absorbs red light giving the planet a blue-green color. Uranus maximum distance from the Sun is 3 billion km. Uranus minimum distance from the Earth is 2.6 billion km. The diameter of Uranus is 51,488 km. Uranus is the coldest of the planets even though Neptune is further away from the Sun. The planet is the second least dense after…

Dione Crescent As it departed its encounter with Saturn's moon Dione, Cassini sailed above an unreal landscape blasted by impacts. The rising Sun throws craters into sharp contrast and reveals steep crater walls.  At the far right, a medium-sized crater is bisected by a fracture, revealing a cross section of the impact site.  The seven clear-filter images in this mosaic were taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Oct. 11, 2005, at distances ranging from of 21,650 to 25,580…

Space Photo of the Day 2012

Every day, Wired Science selects a new awesome space photo for our collection.

Saturn’s Rings -  Thanks to NASA’s Cassini Space Probe This image of Saturn, back-lit by our sun, reveals previously unknown layers of rings. From distance the rings look ordered and tidy. However, up close, Saturn’s rings are very complex. The spacecraft has been making repeated dives into the ring belts to study their properties. It has discovered completely empty regions where moons have formed and dense regions which transmit waves through ripples of debris.  Credit: NASA/JPL/Cassini

Saturn’s Rings - the Cassini Space Probe Thanks to NASA’s Cassini Space Probe astronomers are now able to produce the most detailed maps of Saturn’s rings in history. This image of Saturn, back-lit by our sun, reveals previously unknown layers of.
