When Galileo Galilei first gazed upon Saturn through a telescope in 1610, the planet’s rings looked like two separate spheres. Galileo wrote that Saturn appeared to be triple-bodied.

We've come a long way since that first observation. Come to NASA Goddard's Visitor Center on July 12, 2011, to explore the second largest planet in our solar system. NASA Goddard space scientist, Dr. Paul Romani, will speak about Saturn’s recent storm activity. NASA scientists and engineers will be available for questions. You’ll also get to opportunity to make your own observation of Saturn through a telescope.

Space is limited; please register in advance by using the form below. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Directions to Goddard's visitor center can be found here.
