Clouded out here in NE Scotland at the moment but Saturn should be nearby - it was occulted by the Moon last night in Australia (for some meaning of “last night” applicable to people 180° out of phase).

I watched it come up as I drove up the M2 tonight. It looked fantastic, and would have looked even better if I wasn't driving away from it and having to watch it in my mirrors!
Always a sobering sight though as it comes up over the horizon with all those beautiful hues, that most of the colours are caused my the amount of 4 letter words are my favorite we have pumped into the atmosphere. Ho-hum.

Nice piccie though. Good one.
