Saturn's rotational period is the Saturnian "day." As Saturn is a gas giant, the visible features on Saturn rotate at different rates depending on latitude; the Equatorial Zone has a period of 10 h 14 min 00 s. All other Saturnian latitudes have been assigned a rotation period of 10 h 39 min 24 s.

The precise value for the rotation period of the interior remains elusive but the best estimate is approximately 10 h 45 m 45 s (± 36 s).

The revolution period of Saturn refers to the orbital period around the Sun (the Saturn "year"), which is about 10,579 Earth days or 29.5 Earth years.

What is Saturn's revolution?

Saturn revolves around the Sun once every 29.458 Earth-years.

What is Saturn's rotation?

The visible features of Saturn rotate at different rates depending on their latitude (distance from the equator). Astronomers have developed three different systems for measur

Do Saturn's moons rotate?

Yes. Like most moons, the moons of Saturn are tidally locked,  meaning they rotate once every orbit around Saturn so that the same  side always faces the planet.

What time periods do rotation and revolution define?

Some people define one as turning about an internal axis (like the  daily turning), while the other means turning about an external  axis (like the yearly turning). So you c
