Caption: Saturn, 19th-century illustration. Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest planet in the Solar System. It is a gas giant with an average radius about nine times that of Earth and a volume of over 800 Earths. It is a gas giant and is mostly hydrogen and helium. Saturn has a large ring system of thousands of chunks of rock and ice, probably from a moon that disintegrated. Here, the planet is casting a shadow on the rings at lower right. Observed on 30 November 1874 at 5:30pm. Artwork by French artist and astronomer Etienne Leopold Trouvelot (1827-1895).
