Saturn

Oh, Saturn, how beautiful you are in the night sky! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby teach you all about the gas planet Saturn and her lovely rings! Find out what the rings are made of, what they look like up-close (it’s a lot different than how they look from far away!), and how they are thought to have formed. You’ll also discover what elements Saturn is made from — and one pretty interesting fact about the planet’s low density. Finally, you’ll see why Saturn is called the Jewel of the Solar System! How stunning!
