Saturn’s rings are expected to vanish for three months, beginning Tuesday, Space.com is reporting.

(Hey, I warned Saturn not to get involved with Jon Gosselin, but she just wouldn’t listen.)

The rings, which are visible because they reflect sunlight, disappear every 15 years as equinoxes occur in Saturn’s 30-year orbit and line up directly with the sun.

It’s kinda like how supermodel Kate Moss disappears when she turns to the side.

Saturn’s rings are made of chunks of rock and ice that stretch for 170,000 miles, which means the rings are less like the kind you’d find around someone’s finger and more like the kind you’d find around someone’s bathtub. Say, Ruben Studdard’s, for instance.
