Help us share the beauty of Saturn with your local community.

Welcome to Saturn: the jewel of our solar system. After a seven-year journey, the Cassini spacecraft will arrive at the ringed planet in July 2004. There it will begin a four-year tour of the Saturn system.

You can take part in this adventure by sharing the splendor of Saturn with your local community through the Saturn Observation Campaign.

Saturn and its majestic rings make an annual trek through the night sky, allowing observers to enjoy stunning telescopic views of the planet.

Through the Saturn Observation Campaign, we hope to share this spectacular planet with as many people as possible. The campaign's objective is to create opportunities for professional and amateur astronomers to engage the public in the excitement of the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn.

This website will act as the hub of the observation campaign. A wealth of information on activities, resources, and contacts will be posted to this site on a regular basis. The site will also provide astro-photographers of all ages and levels of expertise a venue to showcase their images of the ringed world.

This opportunity to participate is targeted toward professional and amateur astronomers with working knowledge of and access to telescopes. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.

Log onto the Saturn Observation Campaign website at: http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/cassini/english/soc/index.html

Be a part of this fabulous adventure! Help us share the excitement of viewing Saturn and its rings with your community!
