Saturn is a very very pivotal important concept in Theology and Religion ... Black robes represent the priesthood of the planet Saturn, the Saturnalian brotherhood ... Saturn was the god of darkness, chaos and destruction ... Its symbol was the six-pointed star – today we call it the Star of David ... The Nazi Party was probably the most glorious Saturnalian brotherhood we have ever seen. The Nazis were heavy into the Saturnalian system of philosophy, war, destruction ... Saturn was the god of banking. Jordan Maxwell, lecture The Illuminati
Black robes represent the planet Saturn. Jordan Maxwell, Project Camelot Conference September 2009
Saturn was called by the ancient people Lord of the Rings. ibid.
Saturn is the key to what is happening in so many ways with all its moons … The Dark sun, the Dark Lord, the Lord of the Rings … Saturn has long been symbolised as an eye … The symbol of the horned god: again Saturn … Baphomet, worshipped by Satanists, it’s a symbol of Saturn … Satanism is Saturnism … The planet of death … David Icke, Saturn Isn’t What You Think It Is Either, Youtube 2016
Deep in the shady sadness of a vale
Far sunken from the healthy breath of morn,
Far from the fiery noon, and eve’s one star,
Sat grey-haired Saturn, quiet as a stone. John Keats, Hyperion: A Fragment
There is not perhaps another object in the heavens that presents us with such a variety of extraordinary phenomena as the planet Saturn: a magnificent globe, encompassed by a stupendous double ring: attended by seven satellites: ornamented with equatorial belts: compressed at the poles: turning upon its axis: mutually eclipsing its ring and satellites, and eclipsed by them: the most distant of the rings also turning upon its axis, and the same taking place with the farthest of the satellites: all the parts of the system of Saturn occasionally reflecting light to each other: the rings and moons illuminating the nights of the Saturnian: the globe and satellites enlightening the dark parts of the rings: and the planet and rings throwing back the sun's beams upon the moons, when they are deprived of them at the time of their conjunctions. Sir William Herschel, A Monthly Record of Science
Saturn is a giant gas world. If it has a solid surface, it must lie far below the clouds we see. Saturn’s majestic rings are made of trillions of orbiting snow balls. Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan, Cosmos: The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean, PBS 1980
But Jupiter’s rings can hardly compare to the rings of Saturn, the next stop on Voyager’s grand tour. After travelling another half billion miles Voyager’s next task is to send back information from Saturn. Horizon: Encounter with Jupiter, BBC 1980
It is only in 1556 that the Dutch astronomer Huygens concluded that Saturn was surrounded by a ring. ibid.
Beyond its rings Saturn has an extensive satellite system. ibid.
Voyager will continue on to approach Saturn itself. It will pass underneath the rings at a distance of only eighty-four thousand miles. Nine months later Voyager II will arrive. ibid.
Saturn is smaller than Jupiter. Only seven hundred and fifty times the size of the Earth. Horizon: Earth to Miranda, BBC 1990
A billion miles from home running low on fuel, almost out of time. After thirteen years orbiting Saturn the spacecraft Cassini is about to plunge to a fiery death, becoming part of the very planet it has been exploring. Horizon: Goodbye Cassini – Hello Saturn, BBC 2017
A spacecraft the size of a bus with twelve delicate instruments. ibid.
Titan: one of Saturn’s eighteen moons ... Saturn’s moons – the forgotten players – for it’s the rings that steal the show. Although they could stretch from Earth most of the way to our moon they are exquisitely thin. Icy pearls strung around the planet. The largest only ten yards across. Solar Empire: A Star is Born, 1997
Its hallmark is its rings. The broad rings are actually thousands of individual ringlets ... Different sized particles show up as different colours. Ice the size of peas make up the brown. Whilst finer grains appear white. But the biggest fragments – about the size of a family car – make up the rings closest to the planet. Solar Empire: Edge of Darkness
Saturn’s storms are of epic proportions. ibid.
Voyager’s next port of call was Saturn. It had taken two probes over three years to reach here. Even from Earth the rings are clearly visible. But Voyager discovered that they were wafer-thin. They’re composed of millions of separate rings each made of countless fragments of rock and ice. Above them hovers strange dark shadows thought to be grains of dust swarming in Saturn’s powerful electromagnetic fields. Slightly smaller than Jupiter, Saturn is still 750 times bigger than Earth. And like Jupiter it’s orbited by its own miniature planetary system of moons. Universe: Planets
It is the show-stopper of our solar system basking in its own glow it seduces all admirers. However, it is a beauty with a mean streak. It’s a massive frigid ball of gas surrounded by icy rings hurtling at 40,000 miles an hour. It is a planet of violent weather. The Universe s1e8: Saturn: Lord of the Rings, History 2007
These huge rings are also unbelievably thin: measuring about sixty-five feet. ibid.
Saturn is famous for its magnificent rings. But it’s a little mysterious when it comes to its atmosphere. But if you wait a few years Saturn will put on a storm so magnificent it would impress Mother Nature herself. It’s called the Great White Spot. A gigantic storm that develops every thirty years on Saturn’s surface, eventually covering its entire equator. The Universe s2e15: Wildest Weather in the Cosmos
Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system. It turns out we’re lucky it never got any bigger. Birth of the Solar System
As the ring particles orbit Saturn they’re continually crashing into each other and are collecting into giant clusters that are endlessly forming and breaking apart. As they collide the particles shatter. Brian Cox, Wonders of the Solar System: Order out of Chaos, BBC 2010
Beyond the warm worlds of the inner solar system, beyond the gas giant Jupiter, in the freezing regions far beyond the sun, lies Saturn, a planet made union, thanks to a nearly 300,000-kilometre ring of frozen water. Here, trillions of pieces of ice have been sculptured by gravitational forces. Brian Cox, The Planets IV: Life Beyond the Sun: Saturn, BBC 2019
Saturn is a planet that has undergone some of the most radical transformations in the solar system. A planet that has seen destruction and creation. A planet that harbours hidden worlds, where just perhaps there may exist a second home for life. ibid.
Imagine a place with no surface to stand. Just an endless atmosphere: 1.4 billion kilometres from the sun. ibid.
The storms found on Saturn are amongst the most violent found anywhere in the solar system. ibid.
The mystery of the origin of the rings is an active area of research. ibid.
On average just ten metres thick. Within, moon-sized chunks of ice orbit the structure. ibid.
Over a billion kilometres from the warmth of the sun, just on the outer edge of Saturn’s rings lies the icy moon Enceladus …The most reflective object in the solar system … Giant plumes of water vapour and ice were erupting from its surface … An ocean of liquid water and it was there because of Saturn. ibid.
The north pole of Saturn features a gigantic storm with an amazing geometric design. It’s a perfect hexagon with six very distinct sides and angles. Extreme Universe: Space Storms, National Geographic 2010
The planet with the most unusual moon system is Saturn. It’s spread out over 320,000 kilometres. Technically there are more than a billion moons orbiting Saturn. In fact they are what formed Saturn’s rings. How the Universe Works s1e8: Moons, Discovery 2010
Before Cassini we thought there were only eight rings. Today we can see over thirty. ibid.
Saturn: dazzling, spectacular, the most beautiful planet in the night sky. But Saturn is full of mystery. A planet with extreme storms and strange lights and with rings that ripple and rotate swayed by over sixty moons. How the Universe Works s3e5: Is Saturn Alive?
These winds blow through Saturn’s cloudtops at over 1,600 kph. ibid.
The rings appear to be alive … Cassini has captured ten years’ of images. ibid.
Titan. It is massive. Bigger than the planet Mercury … Mountains and deserts, rivers and lakes … A thick nitrogen-rich atmosphere … A vast source of methane must be replacing the orange smog … It has active geology and complex chemistry. ibid.
