Unlike Earth's auroras—which only last a few hours and are quite small—NASA says that Saturn's auroras rise "hundreds of miles above the planet's poles, [and] can shine for days." Watch how huge they are in relation to the planet in this video captured by Hubble:

It's hard to imagine this but, at 74,898 miles, Saturn is ten times wider than Earth. So big that you can fit 750 Earths inside it. So the size of those auroras are basically a few times larger than Earth, which is insane.

I would only want to live 300 years more so I can actually fly there and see them with my own eyes.
