Rings and Seasons of Saturn: On Saturn, the rings tell the season. The grand rings orbit along the planet's equator. From the direction of the Sun, these rings appear most prominent when Saturn's spin axis is pointed toward the Sun.

Humanity's robot orbiting Saturn has recorded yet another amazing view.

Titan, Saturn's largest moon, appears above as a featureless tan as it is continually shrouded in thick clouds. The rings of Saturn are seen as a thin line because they are so flat and imaged nearly edge on.
