The Day The Earth Smiled: images
Here there are a few images of Saturn automatically taken by the Celestron C14 robotic unit while the Cassini spacecraft was going to take an image of the ringed planet with our planet in the same field of view.
Weather was a issue during the event, as we announced since the 19 July afternoon, but still we were able to get some images and we are happy to share them here.
