The Planet Saturn
Title:
The Planet Saturn
Chrome unused

Description:
This image of Saturn, taken by the Voyager I in 1980, was color-enhanced to increase the visibility of large, bright features in Saturn's North Temperate Belt. It is believed that these spots might closely resemble gigantic convective storms (similar to, but much larger than thunderstorms in Earth's atmosphere) with upwelling from deep within Saturn's atmosphere. The nature of the dark spots like the one visible on the northern edge of the belt is not yet clearly understood, though they seem to resemble equally mysterious features seen on Jupiter. The largest violet-colored cloud belt is Saturn's North Equatorial Belt. Three separate Voyager I images taken through ultraviolet, green and violet filters were used to construct this blue, green and red color composite of Saturn. Color spots in the rings are artifact of image processing. The Voyager Project is managed for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Pasadena, California

Description:
This false-color image of the region of sky around the constellation Orion was produced form data from the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS), and shows a much different view than that seen from optical telescopes. The intensity of infrared radiation is represented by colors: red indicates strong 100-micron wavelength radiation, green indicates strong 60-micron wavelength radiation, and blue shows strong 12-micron wavelength radiation. Well-known regions of star formation are apparent, such as the Orion molecular cloud (large feature dominating lower half of picture), located in and surrounding the sword of Orion. Part of the Milky Way crosses the upper left corner. Extended cirrus clouds associated with the galaxy and the solar system are also seen throughout the image

Description:
Is the nearest star. The mean distance of the sun form the earth is 92.900,000 miles. A railway train going a thousand miles a day (nearly 42 miles an hour without stop) would take 254 1/3 years to make the journey, and the ticket would cost $2,880,000. Its diameter is 866,500 miles. It is 107 1/2 times larger than the earth's diameter. It is 1,3000,000 times larger in volume than the earth. The earth is almost 3,000,000 miles nearer to the sun on December 31 than on July 1. The sun rotates on its axis once in 25 days, 8 hours, 24 seconds. Light traverses the distance in 8 minutes, 9 seconds. The unbra of a sunspot varies from 500 to 50,000 miles in diameter.
