Saturn orbits between Jupiter and Uranus at an average distance of 1,427 million km from the sun. It is a gas giant with an equatorial diameter of 120,000 km, with a conspicuous ring system extending out to a distance twice as great. The planet has a dense hydrogen-rich atmosphere, similar to that of Jupiter but with less distinct banding. There are at least eighteen satellites, the largest of which is Titan, and including small shepherd satellites that orbit close to two of the rings.
