Observing Mars and Saturn
.

 .

The Johannes Keppler team of the Universidad Nacional Experimental Rafael Maria Baralt in

Ciudad Ojeda (in eastern Venezuela), hold monthly public astronomy events.

This month, we took the opportunity to watch Mars and Saturn, with all of their splendorous view.

 We had two telescopes, both Celestrons, and the visitors around the Buchon Park were very close to us and they were

very excited for the chance to view these planets.  For a few of them, it was the first time they got to see Saturn rings, and also it was possible to see Titan, which was very close to the planet.

This was held on February 6th, from 18:30 to almost midnight.
