Saturn is known as a gas giant for a reason. The planet lacks a solid surface, so the transition between the murky atmosphere and the interior is imprecise. Although helium makes up almost a ...

Saturn's atmosphere exhibits a banded pattern similar to Jupiter's, but Saturn's bands are much fainter and are much wider near the equator. The nomenclature used to describe these bands is the same as on Jupiter. Saturn's finer cloud patterns were not observed until the flybys of the Voyager spacecraft during the 1980s.

The atmosphere Composition and structure. Viewed from Earth, Saturn has an overall hazy yellow-brown appearance. The surface that is seen through telescopes and in spacecraft images is actually a complex of cloud layers decorated by many small-scale features, such as red, brown, and white spots, bands, eddies, and vortices, that vary over a fairly short time.

Saturn is one of the most distinctive planets in the solar system, easily identified by its vivid ring system and colorful atmosphere. Saturn is a gas giant, consisting of a small, presumably rocky core surrounded by dense layers of gases that make up the bulk of the planet.

An Overview of Saturn's Atmospheric Composition Saturn's atmosphere is mostly made of the simple molecules hydrogen and helium. There is a lot of sulfur, which gives Saturn its yellow color. There is also nitrogen and oxygen, which are in the air that we breath every day on Earth. These molecules combine to make clouds of complex molecules ...

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn and the second-largest natural satellite in the Solar System.It is the only moon known to have a dense atmosphere, and the only object in space, other than Earth, where clear evidence of stable bodies of surface liquid has been found.. Titan is the sixth gravitationally rounded moon from Saturn.Frequently described as a planet-like moon, Titan is 50% larger ...
