Saturn calling?

This weekend we were at the Urania observatory again. We had been looking forward to finally seeing Saturn’s rings through a telescope (had observed Saturn in Southern France but didn’t have our telescope with us, and weren’t even 100 percent sure it was Saturn). But alas, after a month of clear weather the skies drew their curtain the very night we had been planning to poke them with a serous telescope. They said that if we don’t hurry up Saturn won’t be visible (at a time that the observatory is open) again until 2023. They said they might give us a call for an extra attempt, very sweet of them. Meanwhile, Simon enjoyed a Solar System film instead, where he found a couple mistakes (the film, not the Solar System).
