Why NASA says Saturn's rings will disappear from view in 2025?
Saturn, the gas giant planet, is known for it’s complex and beautiful rings of ice and dust.
Saturn’s rings will disappear from Earth’s view in 2025 because of the planet’s rotation on an axis.
The planet will not actually lose its rings but they will become invisible to us on Earth, confirms NASA.
As the planet rotates on a tilted axis of 26.7 degrees, the view of the rings from Earth changes with time.
This phenomenon happens every 13-15 years. The last time was in 2009.
The next time this happens will begin in 2025 up to March 23.
The first person to look at Saturn through a telescope was Galileo Galilei in 1610.
In 1655, it was Christiaan Huygens who found that Saturn has rings.
Once the phenomenon happens in 2025, the rings will be visible only after a few months.
