Planetary rings are mainly made from dust, ice, many smaller rocks and some larger rocks.
the rings of Saturn are made up of things like rocks, ice, dust, broken up failed moons. actually technically the rings of Saturn are many moons orbiting the planet
A planetary ring
Saturn's rings are composed of ice, dust, and rock particles of different sizes.The rings of Saturn are the extensive planetary ring system of any other planet in the solar system.
I belive that there are 11 rings, but they may have found a new one.
No. The rings around of planet are composed of fragments of ice and/or rock in orbit around the planet.
A planetary ring.
An ansa is the most protruding part of planetary rings as seen from a distance.
Yes. Comets and many planetary rings (much of Saturn's rings, for instance) are made of ice. Because of virtually zero pressure, which allows for almost no temperature, most water in space is in the form of ice.
Neptune does have rings>Im just not sure how many.
No, all the moons and rings rotate in the same plane as the planet itself.
These moons orbit close to planetary rings, and with their gravity, prevent the rings from dispersing, like shepherds.
Nobody knows exactly. Normally, planetary rings are made up of rocks caused by impacts between planets, moons and asteroids. However, Neptune is not a solid planet, so there is nothing for other space objects to impact on. Also, Neptune's rings are very faint and incredibly difficult to see. Therefore astronomers think the rings of Neptune are made of micrometre dust (dust the size of a millionth of a metre) and ice particles.
The material which make up the rings come from a variety of sources. They can be formed frommaterial from the original protoplanetary disk which did not coalesce into the main planetary body;material from collisions between a "moon" and meteorites;ejecta from cryovolcanoes - volcanoes whose eruptions eject volatile materials such as methane, water or ammonia. These condense into "ice".
Johannes Kepler was the person who made the planetary model. He was a German astrologer, mathematician and astronomer. He was also a Mathematics teacher.

Rings form around planets when asteroids, comets or any other large objects pass too close to the planet and are torn apart by the planet's gravity. These fragments will form the planetary rings.

The rings of Saturn are a system of planetary rings around the planet Saturn. They consist of countless small particles, ranging in size from microns to meters, each on its own individual orbit about Saturn. The ring particles are made almost entirely of water ice, with some contamination from dust and other chemicals.-- from Wikipedia
Neptunes rings are made up out of gas.
Saturn's rings are made up of gasses
