Shiprock is the neck, or remains of a solidified lava core, of a dormant 40 million year old volcanic pinnacle. It is shaped somewhat like a 19th century Clipper Ship with high trap-dikes running north from Utah and south from the main spire and rising about 1,800 feet above the Four-Corners New Mexican plain. It’s elevation is 7,178 feet above sea level. It lies about 13 miles southwest of the town of Shiprock, New Mexico.
The Slant on Saturn’s Rings
This image from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope shows Saturn’s Southern Hemisphere and the southern face of its rings in Infrared light.
Saturn experiences seasonal tilts away from and toward the Sun, much the same way Earth does, over the course of its 29.5-year orbit. This means that approximately every 30 years, we can catch Saturn with its rings at their maximum tilt of 27 degrees toward Earth and get the best glimpse of Saturn’s South Pole and the southern side of the planet’s rings.
