[FullHD] Saturn planet video by telescope

A 9-minute video of gaseous planet Saturn seen through my telescope in April 2012. A gas giant planet refers to planets such as Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. These planets
are gaseous, without any solid surface, on which could not land anything.

It is very likely that all giant planets, gas and ice alike, to have come from the same region of the protoplanetary disc of the solar system formation, ~ 5.10 AU, ie today's region of Jupiter and Saturn. Uranus and Neptune are likely to be only "failed" versions of Saturn and Jupiter.

The four outer planets, gas giants, are much more massive than Earth. Two large, Jupiter and Saturn, are composed primarily of hydrogen and helium, and the two outermost planets, Uranus and Neptune, are composed largely of ice, such as water, ammonia and methane, and are often referred to separately as "ice giants".
