THE RINGS ??

Each ring is really just a collection of thousands of smaller rings packed very closely together. There are seven broad classifications among the rings: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, each receiving its name in the order it was discovered. The main rings most visible from Earth are A, B and furthermore, between each ring there are gaps. At 4,700 km and occurring between rings A and B, Cassini is the largest of these gaps.The main rings begin roughly 7,000 km above Saturn’s equator and extend out another 73,000 km Interestingly, though this radius is substantial, the actual thickness of the rings is no more than about one kilometer.
