I dream of Saturn

Had a dream that I was peering into my telescope to look at Saturn. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, I brought Matt and Josh to look at Saturn from the Astro club's viewing evening. Seeing another planet gives perspective. It makes one feel that there is a wider realm about and makes things feel less significant in kind of a good way. Trivial problems just melt away at the sight of a planet that is 9.609 AU (Astronomical Units) away from us. Hey I found a way to use wolframalpha meaningfully. Which is 893.21 million miles away from Earth. (Another good use of wolframalpha!).
