Nasa Discovers Massive Ring Around Saturn

Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope has discovered a huge ring around Saturn it is by far the largest of Saturn's rings.The new ring is in the confines of the Saturnic system, with an orbit inclined 27 degrees to the plane of the main ring.

Most of his material began about 3.7 billion miles from Earth and extends out approximately another 7.4 million miles. One of the more distant moons of Saturn, Phoebe, circles within the ring and it is likely that it is the source of this space dust. It is pretty amazing that Nasa has discovered this new almost invisible ring.
