Can’t believe I missed it!


Tonight I came home to a very bummed Rich standing next to the spotting scope in the back yard. He told me I had just missed (by two minutes) seeing Saturn! It dipped down behind the trees the minute I pulled into the driveway. He’d had an excellent, sharp view of it for about 45 minutes, in fact, until it entered the haze. But if I’d been just a few minutes earlier, at least I would have caught a glimpse. He said it was as if even Saturn conspired against me!

We did have a clear view of Jupiter and three moons:

And a view of all four at 4:00am:
