Saturn doesn’t look all that far, because the gas planet and Earth are at close points in their orbits, and that spells for some amazing star gazing in our area over the next two weeks.

Saturn’s rings, are about 30 feet thick and made up of mostly of water ice, and are now tilted for perfect viewing using a telescope of any size or a high-quality set of binoculars.

It also might be worthwhile calling The Observatory at UMASS-Dartmouth, located in the open field to the right of the main entrance. The number is 508-999-8715 or at UMass Dartmouth website. The kids and you will love viewing heaven’s poetry!
