In other news, from another mission, of yet another world, the Hubble Space Telescope has released a July 23 image of Saturn in its full summer glory. Or at least in its Northern Summer glory with its southern hemisphere largely hidden by its rings. This image is part of a yearly series taken by Hubble that allows us to watch this world change during its 29-year orbit. Launched in 1990, and fixed in 1993, Hubble hasn’t yet caught a complete circuit of Saturn around the Sun but is getting very very close.
Here is to hoping that Hubble stays healthy and continues to bring us the changing face of Saturn for seasons to come.
