On the evening of 19th July, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft photographed Saturn and its entire ring system during a total eclipse of the Sun.To mark the event, the IAA held a special Saturn Observing Event, at Delamont Country Park. The great weather continued, blessing us with clear skies. We started with a 'Bring Your Own' BBQ followed by observing the Moon and Saturn, and then 'posing for the picture' by Cassini.
