Surrounding Saturn

The ring system stretches for hundreds of thousands of miles into space but is only miles deep. The rings are made of pieces of dirty water ice that follow their own orbits around Saturn. Ranging in size from boulders several yards across down to dust grains, they reflect sunlight well, making the rings easy to see. The conspicuous gap in the rings is known as the Cassini division.
