Caption: Rings of Saturn. Artwork of a view from above the plane of the rings of the planet Saturn, with the Sun at centre and Saturn at right. Saturn is over 1.3 billion kilometres from the Sun. Its rings, only about one kilometre thick, consist of millions of rock and ice chunks. The most visible rings extend outwards from Saturn for around 120,000 kilometres. They are thought to have formed from the disintegration of a moon that was too close to Saturn or was hit by a comet or asteroid.
