    Saturn and Enceladus, artwork. Saturn is at top left, its small, icy moon Enceladus is at bottom. Recently, astronomers have begun to suspect that Enceladus has a subsurface ocean of liquid water just tens of metres beneath its frigid surface of cracked ice. Enceladus is just 500 km across, it orbits Saurn at a distance of 238,020 km.

    Saturn. Artwork of the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest in the solar system. Saturn is a gas giant, composed mostly of hydrogen, with small proportions of helium and trace elements. It has a prominent ring system, consisting mainly of ice and dust particles, and is orbited by at least sixty moons.

    Ice plumes on Europa. Europa is the smallest of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter, and the second closest to the planet. Its surface is icy and relatively smooth. Impacting meteorites cause melting of the surface, allowing the water to smooth out before re-freezing. There is some evidence of large-scale movements of the ice, possibly supported by a liquid mantle and driven by thermal processes wi

    For the first time, astronomers have detected actual weather systems on a planet beyond the Solar System. Orbiting the star HAT-P-7, 1000 light-years away, is a gas giant 16 times larger than Earth. Called HAT-P-7b, the planet is so close to its star that the dayside temperature is much hotter than the night side. This imbalance drives a fast jet stream, made up of clouds of corundum (from which r

    Artwork of a volcanic moon eclipsing a star. The moon is in a close orbit around a hypothetical giant planet somewhat like Neptune. Like Io, which orbits Jupiter in our own Solar System, the moon is constantly being flexed by powerful tidal forces from the nearby planet. This continually heats the satellite's interior, and that heat is released through the surface via ceaseless volcanic activity.

Saturn, like Earth, has a large axial tilt (it rotates on a different plane to the one in which it travels around the Sun). With Earth, this effect causes the seasons. With Saturn, it is useful as it allows Saturn's polar regions to be studied from Earth. Its south pole is seen here. Saturn orbits the Sun once every 29.5 year

    Iluustration of Neptune seen from the orbit of its moon, Nereid. Little is known about this small satellite aside from details of its orbit, size and spin. It measures roughly 340 km across, though it is irregularly shaped, orbits Neptune in 360 days, and spins once on its axis in 11.59 hours. It was discovered in 1949 by Gerard Kuiper, of Kuiper-belt fame.
