Does Saturn have more rings than Jupiter?

Yes, Saturn has many more rings than Jupiter. Jupiter only has 4 rings. Saturn's rings, however, have not bee officially counted. There are seven groups of rings. There are four main groups and three fainter groups. Inside every group there is an unknown number of rings orbiting the planet. There are many theories of the number of Saturn's rings, ranging from 30 to under 1,000. It's believed that the rings of Saturn are caused by a moon which lost its icy shell as it orbited the planet, getting closer to it, eventually crashing into Saturn.


Is Saturn bigger than Jupiter?

Jupiter is bigger than Saturn. Saturn's rings extend far out, but these don't really count as part of the planet. It only appears that Saturn might be larger as it is closer to Earth than Jupiter.


What is the temperature of Jupiter rings?

Jupiter's rings are probably colder than Saturn's more prominent ones, given the cold of space. One ESA (Cassini) measurement for Saturn was from -163°C for the inner ring, -203°C for the center rings, and -183°C for the outer rings.


How did Jupiter get its rings?

It's thought that Jupiter's rings, similar to Saturn's, are the result of rocky debris in orbit around the planet that collides both with other debris and with some of Jupiter's 67 or more moons. Jupiter's rings are much less prominent than Saturn's, and were only discovered in 1979 by the Voyager I space probe.

What is the difference between Jupiter and Saturn?

Jupiter is closer to the sun, has a slightly bigger diameter, and has over 3 times the mass of Saturn. The main visual difference is that Jupiter looks more red and Saturn is more yellow. Saturn has an extensive, very visible ring system around it, but Jupiter's rings are so faint that we did not know about them until spacecraft passed close by. Jupiter has more heavy metals in its interior meaning that it is much more dense whereas the overall density of Saturn is less than that of water. Jupiter is slightly warmer and so has more weather features in its atmoshpere such as the storm known as the "Great red spot". Saturn also has faster winds than Jupiter. Jupiter's magnetosphere, or magnetic field, is much larger then Saturn's, and has much more intense radiation.
