Its Never Good Enough

Astronomers have found a gigantic planet, much larger than Jupiter with a ring system that dwarfs Saturn's. The rings have cloud spaces in them that indicate multiple moons spinning in the rings, much like our own ringed giant.

I wonder if that means that have to reclassify Saturn as a dwarf ring giant.

On yeah, I'm still smarting from Pluto's reclassification.
