How big is saturn?

Question asked by: jajanjoen

Asked on: 01 Aug 2010

Saturn is very big indeed.

That is why it is known as one of the gas giants.

The equatorial diameter of Saturn is 120,536 km, this makes it comfortably the second largest of all the planets in the solar system. The only planet that is bigger - and by some scale indeed - is Jupiter, which is larger than any other planet by a long margin.

Saturn is many times bigger than the small rocky planets close to the sun, which are Mercury, Venus, Earth and of course Mars. After Saturn there are other large gaseous planets but those are smaller bodies again.
