Saturn, another gas giant like Jupiter, spins faster than any other planet, and is the furthest planet that can be seen by the naked human eye, 886,489,415 miles (1,426,666,422 km) from the sun. Saturn, with a radius of about 36,183.7 miles (58,232 km), possesses moons but it is better known for its rings, composed of tiny bits of ice and rock, believed to be debris left over from comets, asteroids or shattered moons. Does having rings make you special, Saturn? No, because Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune also possess rings. But Saturn, yours are definitely the most stunning.
