Myths about Saturn and its Moons
is one of the five planets known since ancient times, and no one knows who first observed it. The planet was named after the Roman god, Saturn, the god of agriculture and the harvest. He is frequently shown holding a sickle in his left hand and wheat in his right hand. In Roman mythology, his mother was Terra (Gaea
) and his father was Caelus (Uranus
). There are also interesting myths about Saturn's Moons, including Pan
, the Greek god protector of shepherds, sheep, and goats.
