Saturn at Dawn 31.05.20
GSO 12 "
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest in the Solar System behind Jupiter. Belonging to the group of gas giants, it has about 95 land masses and orbits an average distance of 9.5 astronomical units.
It has a small rocky core, surrounded by a thick layer of metallic hydrogen and helium. Its atmosphere, also composed mainly of hydrogen, presents bands with strong winds, whose energy comes from both the heat received from the Sun and the energy radiated from its center. However, these bands have little prominent appearance, with a color that varies from brown to yellowish, due to the thick fog that surrounds the planet, in addition to the layers of clouds. Seasonally, large storm systems emerge, in addition to permanent vortexes existing at the poles.
