    The Moon and Saturn Together

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     greghogan may only have been aiming his camera at the sky for the last six months but the astrophotography bug has bitten him pretty hard. “I bought a telescope for $25 at a yard sale and the first time I saw Saturn’s rings, I was completely hooked,” he says. “There’s just so much out there that people don't realise that you can see without the equipment being expensive if you just slow down a minute and take a peek.”
    - lmoorhouse, CNN iReport producer

    July 7th 2014 the planet Saturn made a pass by the moon in the evening sky. This was the 2nd planet this week to do so. Mars did the same thing on July 5th. You can see that image here:

    Its been a fun week for the night sky observer. Saturn is always a fun sight as you can make out its rings with nothing more then a pair of binoculars.
