First sight of Saturn!

Recommended Posts

Had a run of wet mornings. But today at 7.15 am before their last day at school the kids were rewarded with their first sight of Saturn's rings.

Both, aged 7 and 11, excited and didn't moan that it was tiny. It is great to see the wow factor still exists despite the wonders of i pads and NASA pictures. Seeing things for yourself is still magical.

I find that brilliant that you are getting your children interested in astronomy, if more people where introduced into just how amazing it is, we might progress faster with our space tech and go further sooner.

It feels completely different when observed by your own eyes, i always get the wow factor!!
