Out Of This World

Good Morning Frank Marzullo Here... Named after the roman god "Saturn, the planet Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun and the second largest in our solar system behind Jupiter. This weekend I had the chance to look at Saturn up close and personal. No, I did not hop on a shuttle and go for a visit, all I had to do was look into the telescope at our Cincinnati Observatory. Housing the oldest professional working telescope in the country, the observatory is located in Mt. Lookout and on Saturday they hosted a Saturn viewing party. It was awesome, to walk through the two buildings on the property and look at the nine rings of Saturn and some of it's moons. In fact the planet itself has 62 moons, and we were able to see some of them on a clear and mild Saturday night. Do yourself a favor and check in with Dean Regas and the great people at our Observatory it is a real treasure you do not want to miss.
