Close encounter again...


Planet Saturn approached closely to the Moon, as seen from the observatory, on past March, 20th. Indeed it's always nice to view such different worlds in the same apparent field, with giant Saturn distant of almost one and half billon kilometers, and our tiny Moon less than 400,000km away...

However the spectacle might be even greater in the morning of next April, 17th, as the Moon will occult Saturn!... Despite the uncomfortable time (around 05H00 in the morning), we just wish that many people will witness this unusual event...
