How long does it take Saturn to orbit the sun?

Answer

Saturn orbits the sun in approximately 29.7 Earth years. It orbits the sun in an elliptical path, just as all of the planets in the solar system do.

Because Saturn is farther away from the sun than the Earth, its distance dramatically increases the amount of time required for Saturn to make a complete revolution around the sun. The revolution that Saturn makes around the Sun is in an elliptical shaped orbit. Saturn's orbit velocity is 21,562 miles per hour, just under one-third that of Earth. However, Saturn's rotational speed is more than twice as fast as Earth's: 0.44 Earth days elapse before Saturn rotates once.
