CELS, Nottingham Trent University, Clifton Campus, Clifton Lane, Nottingham, NG11 8NS

Speakers: Dr D Brown, Nottingham Trent University

Saturn is one of the most recognisable planets in our solar system. Our second largest gas giant with amazing rings and a plethora of odd and intriguing moons. Some of these moons might even contain liquid water and possibly life.

Dr D Brown (NTU) will outline the highlights of Cassini’s 13 years orbiting Saturn. He will cover how we explored moons such as Titan and dived through Saturn’s rings, ultimately ending in a controlled descent into Saturn.

The event will start at 8 pm with Dr D Brown's talk Reviewing the End of Cassini. Refreshments will be offered from 7.45 pm in the CELS foyer. Afterwards, visitors will get a tour of the NTU observatory and the chance to see interesting objects in the autumn sky using the observatory's telescopes, small telescopes and binoculars, if the weather allows it.

If the weather is not good, a small planetarium session will be offered in the observatory pointing out objects of interest.
