Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter. It is classified as a gas giant, and noted for its prominent system of rings, consisting mostly of ice particles with a smaller amount of rocky debris and dust.

Saturn is named after the Roman god of farming and agriculture.
