Lord of the RinGs
nO Im not talking about the movie or the book, its Saturn, the lord of the ring system in our skies im talking about.
Five planets of our solar system can be easily seen in the skies and are visible as bright stars. All you need to know is where to look and when, as they are not visible all the time, but they wander around the night sky.
These days, Saturn is the only planet visible and it rises around 2 Am and can be seen easily until dawn. It was an amazing experience to view saturn through the telescope. The disk and the amazing ring system. Two of its moons were also visible. But were really tiny…
Though abviously, the view was nothing like that seen in books and media..obv nothing compared to hubble, still it was an awsome sight. I wud need to buy more eyepieces to see details on the surface and better viewing conditions as there is too much light pollution in my area from the creek city and the creek club.
I also took a pic of saturn, but with a mobile camera. The pic is terrible and saturn looks tinier in the pic than it really was, but i was only too happy to have been able to captureit!
Left is the hubble pic and on the right side is mine with Nokia 6280 held at the eyepiece!
