Isn't Saturn just beautiful with its hundreds of multi-colored rings? However, the rings are not solid but made of very fine dust, rock and ice particles. The ice causes them to glisten. Nobody is sure how Saturn came to have such amazing rings, although scientists believe that they are debris (small bits of rock and ice) left from a moon which used to orbit Saturn. Scientists believe that something collided with the moon about 50 million years ago and the debris spread out to form the rings of Saturn. Thank you very much for asking.
