On Friday, July 19, the Cassini spacecraft will be taking pictures from orbit around Saturn, capturing the ringed planet in eclipse against the Sun. This will not only provide fantastic views of the planet’s rings and atmosphere, but will also include another treat: our planet Earth, visible as a small blue dot in the distance!
At NHMU, you will be able to view Saturn and the Sun through specially designed telescopes, make your own Cassini model, build and launch our own rocket, and meet local astronomy experts from the Department of physics and Astronomy!
