February NSA Club Meeting

  • Schaumburg Public Library 130 South Roselle Road Schaumburg, IL, 60193 United States (map)

Saturn is often the first object that people see through a telescope, and the view is often the event that hooks people on astronomy forever. Why? Because it looks like a real place. And what's more, the entire Saturnian system is astonishing.  Michelle Nichols of Adler Planetarium provides a presentation that highlights the astounding discoveries by the Cassini spacecraft, and showcases stunning imagery of Saturn, its rings, and its varied moons.
