    Large Pieces of Ice and Rock

    The Rings of Saturn Made from large pieces of ice and rock. Saturn was the Roman for the Greek Cronos, god of farming and the father of Zeus/Jupiter. Saturn is the second largest planet in our system after Jupiter. Saturn rings system is very wide, spreading out over a distance 1,75,000 miles (2,82,000 km). Saturn rings are not solid. They are made up of bits of ice, dust and rock. In 1610, Galileo Galilee was the first to see Saturn’s rings from his rudimentary telescope.

    Saturn’s rings are made of billions of pieces of ice, dust and rocks. Some of these particles are as small as a grain of salt, while others are as big as houses.
