Chalk-up another ring for Saturn

by Elisabeth on Sep. 22nd, 2006

Add one more ring for Saturn! Scientists discovered a faint, new ring circling the planet Saturn. The ring appears to be composed of debris from two of Saturn’s moons when meteoroid impacts occurred. Just in case you are wondering, the exact number of rings around Saturn is not known.

In addition to having many rings, Saturn is a planet that has a large number of moons. It has at least 34 (probably more), all of various shapes, colors, and sizes. Saturn's largest moon, called "Titan", is over 3,000 miles in diameter.
