Return to Saturn                        Return to Messier Objects
Tonight the planets Jupiter and Saturn were close enough to Globular Cluster M75 for them to
all fit in the same field-of-view through my 155mm refractor.  Four of Jupiter's moons: Io (to the
left of Jupiter) and Ganymede, Europa, Callisto to the right of Jupiter and  two of Saturn's
moons were visible, Titan at the lower left of Saturn and Rhea to the upper right of the planet.

Considering how low this threesome was in the evening sky, I was pleased that I could visually
get M75 and at least two of Saturn's moons.
