The planet next beyond Jupiter, and almost twice as distant, it being 875,000,000 miles from the sun. In size it comes next toJupiter, its diameter being 73,000 miles. Its year is equal to nearly 291/2 earthly years, and it rotates on its axis in 10 hours. In addition to its nine moons - one of them recently discovered - it has a remark-able feature in its two - or perhaps five - wonder-ful rings, which surround it at a distance of some 20,000 miles. These rings are supposed to be made up of meteors rotating in company around the planet.
