Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system and sixth planet from the Sun and is the with an equatorial diameter of 119,300 kilometers (74,130 miles). It is one of the most beautiful objects in the sky do its ring system that are split into a number of different parts, which include the bright A and B rings and a fainter C ring.


The ring system has various gaps and some scientists claim there is a chance for life on Saturns moons. Much of what is known about the planet is due to the Voyager explorations in 1980-81. Saturn is visibly flattened at the poles, a result of the very fast rotation of the planet on its axis. Its day is 10 hours, 39 minutes long, and it takes 29.5 Earth years to revolve about the Sun. The atmosphere is primarily composed of hydrogen with small amounts of helium and methane.


Saturn is the only planet less dense than water. Saturn would float in it. Saturn's hazy yellow hue is marked by broad atmospheric banding similar to, but fainter than, that found on Jupiter. Saturn has 30 named satellites and more continue to be discovered.   Rhea, Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, and Dione, are approximately spherical in shape and appear to be composed mostly of water ice. Enceladus reflects almost 100 percent of the sunlight that strikes it. All five satellites represent a size range that had not been explored before.


There are at least 17 satellites and possibly more and three additional possible satellites have been identified in imaging data since the Voyager 2 encounter.  The innermost satellite, Atlas, orbits near the outer edge of the A-ring and is about 40 by 20 kilometers (25 by 15 miles) in size. The next satellite outward, Prometheus, shepherds the inner edge of the F-ring and is about 140 by 100 by 80 kilometers (90 by 60 by 50 miles) in size. Next is Pandora, the outer shepherd of the F-ring and is 110 by 90 by 80 kilometers (70 by 55 by 50 miles) in size. Both shepherds were found by Voyager 1.   Next are Epimetheus and Janus, which share about the same orbit -- 91,000 kilometers (56,600 miles) above the clouds. As they near each other, the satellites trade orbits (the outer is about 50 kilometers, or 30 miles, farther from Saturn than the inner). Janus is 220 by 200 by 160 kilometers (140 by 125 by 100 miles), and Epimetheus is 140 by 120 by 100 kilometers (90 by 70 by 50 miles) in size.  One new satellite, Helene, shares the orbit of Dione, about 60° ahead of its larger companion, and is called the Dione Trojan. It is about 36 by 32 by 30 kilometers (22 by 20 by 19 miles). Helene was discovered in ground-based photographs.   Two more satellites are called the Tethys Trojans because they circle Saturn in the same orbit as Tethys, about 60° ahead of and behind that body. They are Telesto (the leading Trojan) and Calypso (the trailing Trojan). Both were found in 1981 among ground-based observations made in 1980. Telesto is 34 by 28 by 26 kilometers (21 by 17 by 16 miles) and Calypso is 34 by 22 by 22 kilometers (21 by 14 by 14 miles


One of the most interesting speakers at the the International UFO Congress in Laughlin, Nevada. was Dr. Norman Bergrun's a former NASA scientist who showed Evidence of ET Intelligence with a possible ET ship in the rings of Saturn. He has published the “THE RINGMAKERS OF SATURN”    Dr. Bergrun is an alumnus of Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics). At Ames, he pioneered establishment of design criteria for airplane thermal ice prevention. Later, he developed roll-stability laws for airplanes, missiles and rockets. These engagements provided a base of knowledge necessary to arrive at some understanding of extraterrestrial technology. He workded for Lockheed Missile and Space Company and in 1971, founded Bergrun Research and Engineering. He continues his 5 decades of image-analysis. Thousands of images have been examined of Mars, the Solar System Planets and Satellites, the Moon, Sun, Hubble Telescope & Shuttle images.

Knowledge has built up sufficiently to enable some concepts about the future to be articulated with a degree of certainty. picture, which physicists expect to be working on for the next 50 years. Utilizing the civilization-type concept and Ringmakers of Saturn findings, it will be shown that an immense job lies ahead if mankind is to control its own resources and environment, let alone venture into space.

Dr. Bergrun’s slide presentation begins by describing an exhibition by an ultra hi-tech extraterrestrial object sighted from Pajaro Dunes, California. He recounts coincident events and describes specific physical properties of the object sighted. A decade later, this object was discovered to be similar to objects recorded during the NASA Voyager 1 mission. He then skips to 1980-81 when, NASA Voyagers 1 and 2 experienced their closest approach to Saturn. Cylindrical objects have been discovered at Saturn and farther out at a satellite of Uranus. Geometry and other characteristics of these objects are similar to the one at Pajaro Dunes. Technology photographed on the Voyager 1 mission pointed to space-travel capability which triggered scrutiny of NASA Apollo images obtained by astronauts on Earth’s moon.     A strange Light is at #1 with a possible cylindrical ship at the end of Saturn   ring.  Point #2 allegedly shows electromagnetic lines.
