When it comes to atoms, language can be used only as in poetry.
The poet, too, is not nearly so concerned with describing facts
as with creating images.

Saturn - upcoming transits

Titan Transit

Saturn is getting bigger and higher.  The dark spot in Saturn is Titan NOT it's shadow.  Titan transits are very rare!  And I'm fortunate to be able to view this.  There are 3 more transits for the year.  The one on February 24 will be a rare quadruple transit!!


Saturn's Moons

Now is a good time to observe Saturn - next year the planet is headed for a ring-plane crossing so we won't get as good of a view of the rings as we do now. Here's a nifty online doo-dad that can help you observe the brighter satellites of Saturn:http://www.skyandtelescope.com/observing/objects/planets/3308506.html?page=1&c=y
