The Dew Drop of Saturn

There’s nothing really techncial to say about this one – but the tiny white spec at the bottom is Encalaedus. A moon of Saturn about 500km across. This show specacularly the vast scale and beauty of the Saturn system.

It’s also incredible to know that Encalaedus was discovered in the late 1700’s by William Herschel, Saturn itself must have been no more than a small disc in his telescope, the moon must have been massively diffcult to spot. Just wow!

  1. Simon,

    Hello!

    I just wanted to thank you SOOOO much for taking the time to read the blog post I made that Erika Kind reblogged titled “Please Help Our Momma” (https://protomarq.wordpress.com/2016/05/02/helpourmomma/) about the on-going struggles that my family is facing after my mom was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer. It’s been an uphill battle but we have been blessed with so much love, support and encouragement that I don’t know what we would have done without it. It may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things but just knowing that you took time to support our cause seriously means the world to me and my little family. I would like to humbly ask that if you are in the position to contribute something (anything!) to our cancer relief crowd funding campaign it would make a serious impact, even just $5.00, because every little bit makes such a HUGE difference. If you are unable to (and we completely understand) please, at the very least, consider reblogging the “Please Help Our Momma” post to your readers and/or share the campaign on whatever social media outlets you utilize for your readers because maybe we might get in front of the right people who have the means to help my family stay afloat during this time. Thank you so much! Here’s a direct link to the campaign as well. https://igg.me/at/Hz9-ILFN2P0

    Thanks again. Seriously!

    Christopher Michael
