A tremendous sight has been seen in the sky at around 11.30 am today. After a year, the planet Saturn came closer to the Earth. However, this sight was seen in the same countries where night was happening at this time. However, due to morning in India, this scene could not be seen here. Saturn revolves around the Sun in space in 29.5 years of the Earth at a speed of 34000 kilometers per hour. During this, Saturn and Earth come close to each other once every one year and 13 days. Last year this sight was seen on July 20, while now it will come to another on August 14 next year.
This is the distance between
According to scientists, the distance of Saturn from Earth constantly changes, because both the planets constantly move in different orbits in space. During this time, when these two are close, the distance between them is one billion and twenty million kilometers, which is eight times more than the distance between the Earth and the Sun. This situation occurs when these two planets are facing each other in orbits on the same side of the sun. When Earth and Saturn reach each other on opposite sides of the Sun, they are at the greatest distance of one billion 650 million kilometers, which is 11 times the distance between Earth and the Sun.
1 year comes close in 13
Earth revolves around the sun in 365 days while Saturn takes 29.5 years to complete this process. During this, after every one year and 13 days, Saturn and Earth come near each other. This year it happened this morning at 11.30 am. During this, the rings of Saturn were seen from the telescope from Earth. Along with this some moons were also seen.
