Solar System Pictures with images, information and facts about the planets, moons, objects and origin our solar system.

Planet Saturn Saturn Trail Picture

Planet Saturn Storm Trail

This picture was captured on 25 February 25, 2011 by the Cassini Orbiter. It was taken about 12 weeks after the storm began and the clouds by this time had formed a tail that wrapped around the planet. This storm is the largest, most intense storm observed on Saturn by NASA's Voyager or Cassini spacecraft. It is still active today (Feb 2013).


Mercury Colors Picture

Colors of Planet Mercury

Mercury is the innermost planet. This colorful view of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map imaging campaign during NASA MESSENGER's primary mission. These colors are not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but rather the colors enhance the chemical, mineralogical and physical differences between the rocks that make up Planet Mercury's surface.


Saturn's Infrared Rings Picture

Planet Saturn's Infrared Ring.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope discovered a giant infrared ring around planet Saturn in 2009.The new belt lies at the far reaches of the Saturnian system, with an orbit tilted 27 degrees from the main ring plane. The bulk of its material starts about 6 million kms (3.7 million miles) away from the planet and extends outward roughly another 12 million kms (7.4 million miles). The ring's diameter is equivalent to roughly 300 Saturns lined up side to side.

 The ring consists of widely-dispersed particles of ice and dust. Spitzer's infrared eyes were able to spot the glow of the cool dust. Saturn's farthest moon, Phoebe, circles within the newfound ring and is likely the source of its material.
