Planetary Ponderings - Part 6 of 9: Saturn

by Perry Pezzolanella, MVAS

Saturn is the most beautiful planet to ponder; the simple thought of it conjures up vivid images of beautiful rings. Saturn is the most inspiring planet to view through any telescope regardless of its size.

The arrival of Cassini last year along with the stunning discoveries of Huygens give so much to ponder regarding Saturn, its rings, Titan, and its many moons, that a book could easily be dedicated to this most beautiful gem of the Solar System. The best may be yet to come.
