• Question: What do the rings of saturn look like through a telescope and how did it feel to see them in real life instead of looking at them in a picture

      When I finally found Saturn in the telescope after scanning the sky for awhile, I was really surprised because it was a shiny golden color and it looked absolutely nothing like any of the other planets or stars that I had seen before. It was a cool feeling because even though you know that Saturn’s a super gigantic planet spinning out there in space, it looks really small and still in the telescope. It makes you feel really small when you think about how far away another planet is, but also it’s cool because you can look up and see another world from our own planet.
