“Saturn is the 6th of the major planets in order of distance from the sun, and the outermost known to the ancients. Its mean diameter is about 70,000 miles, its mean distance from the sun somewhat more than 872,000,000 miles, and its year or periodical revolution around the sun nearly twenty-nine and one-half years. Its mass is about 90 times that of the earth. Saturn is attended by ten satellites and surrounded by a system of flat rings, which are now supposed to be an immense multitude of small satellites mixed probably with vaporous matter."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
