<I>Up close and personal with Saturn</I><BR>Now's the perfect time to view the ringed planet

FLAGSTAFF — Four months away from NASA's Cassini-Huygens spacecraft's highly anticipated orbiting of Saturn, Lowell Observatory grants visitors an up-close and personal view of the ringed planet in its own backyard.

At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights from now until mid-April at the observatory, the public can gaze at Saturn's fascinating rings and shapely orb through Lowell's Alvan Clark 24-inch telescope — well known for its superb optics.
