Rings [ID: 2]

Saturn may have the most famous rings but Jupiter has some too. Jupiter’s rings are best imaged when looking towards the sun because of the way small particles scatter light. This is a familiar process that allows us for example to see dust hanging in the air when we look at the beam of light from a projector.
