Hi Cassini

Earth and SaturnDuring our evening constitutional I mentioned to the Missus that the Cassini spacecraft would be taking a photo of Saturn and Earth that evening and we should get out and wave.  Let’s just say her response was underwhelming.  However, as the “Say Cheese” moment approached a bunch of Johnny-come-latelies like Brian Cox and Richard Dawkins started twittering about it 1 and the Missus started getting all interested.  However, with Saturn hidden by trees in our garden, she wasn’t interested enough to wander down the road with binoculars looking distinctly dodgy: she left that to Jazz and I.  So click on the thumbnail and look at this fantastic picture: Jazz and I are on the top-right of the pixel.

Notes:

  1. I believe this to be what people with too much time on their hands call “social media”
