With the naked eye, you can easily confuse Mars with Saturn. However, when you point a telescope at it, you immediately see the difference.
This planet, which is often the favorite of all astronomers, has a magnificent characteristic. Its superb rings light up the faces of novice planet hunters. It’s really surprising.
The rings gradually tilt, and periodically reveal the Cassini Division, a huge space between them.
Saturn has several moons. The largest, Titan, is clearly visible with small telescopes. Most of Saturn’s cloud bands are not as pronounced as those of Jupiter.
