The rings of Saturn are a rainbow phenomenon
The rings of Saturn are a rainbow phenomenon: it is due to the light dispersion into its components by passing through some ice or water particles, like the rainbow that sometimes appears after the rain, and like the halo of the Moon.
The colors in the halo of the Moon is not so distinct and clear like in the common rainbow that we sometimes see following rain; similarly the colors of the rings of Saturn are less intense because of the far distance.
It seems that Saturn lies at some angle from Earth, more suitable for such a phenomenon to be more prominent with Saturn than the other planets; even the rings of Neptune are not so clear like those of Saturn.
The rings of Saturn, one time are clearly obvious, and other times less clearly obvious, according to the position of Saturn from Earth, as each of them goes along in its orbit around the Sun; and may be that its angle with Earth changes in each position.
As the Sunrays light is dispersed into its components when it passes through the ice or water particles in the atmosphere of a planet, and this planet being at a certain angle with Earth, the rings will appear in relation to that planet.
It indicates that Saturn (and Neptune) has abundant water in its atmosphere, and so life does exist there on Saturn. God – be exalted – said in the Quran, 21: 30

The explanation: (and [We] made – of water – every living thing? So would they believe?)

As the light disperses across some part of the atmosphere of Saturn, these color layers will include a large number of meteorites: small and large that orbit around Saturn, as do they orbit around Earth and other planets.
This is confirmed by noticing that these rings are wide and flat but very thin. They are different in color, but they are generally faint; because of being far away. The halo of Moon have more intense colors, and the rainbow, that we see after rain, has still more intense colors depending on the distance of each of Saturn, Moon and the atmosphere of Earth respectively.
The difference between the halo of the Moon and the Rings of Saturn, is that the halo occurs as the light passes through the atmosphere of the Earth, whereas the Rings of Saturn occur as the light passes through the atmosphere of Saturn itself; i.e. the light dispersion that forms the halo occurs in the Earth atmosphere, while the light dispersion that forms the Rings of Saturn occurs in the atmosphere of Saturn itself.
