Caption: Image comparing the size of Earth (left) with the planet Saturn. Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun, with an average distance from it of 9.4 times the Earth-Sun distance. Being a fluid world of mostly hydrogen and helium, astronomers label it (along with Jupiter) a gas giant. With a diameter of 9.4 times that of the Earth, Saturn is the Solar System's second largest planet (after Jupiter).
