Saturn’s back! Once again easily visible in the night sky the ringed orb will stay with us all summer, delighting telescope owners and mystifying scientists as it has since Galileo first observed it four hundred years ago. We will discuss some of the most recent results as well as the history of the most distant classical planet.
