June 25th...Geek Joy

What little joys did I have yesterday?  Whatched several episodes of Earth 2 (loved that show), knitted and painted a comes the geekiness...saw Saturn!  HA!  The Honey setup the telescope, which is just a small little thing, and at about 9 or so it was dark enough that he found it in the sky.  It was really tiny but we could make out the rings!  It was waaaayyyyyyy cool.  It was pretty small in our telescope, one because our telescope is not powerful and two it is 1.2 billion kilometers away from Earth.  We tried to see if we could get a pic of it through the telescope lens but that did not work.  I fould a picture of what we kind of saw on the Theory of Everything Blog.  What we saw was a little fuzzier but still this is close to it.

Cool right?  I could tell that The Honey was happy...How?  Well he kept saying "I saw Saturn". *grin*
