Hi everyone, I thought you'd enjoy this feature about observing 
Saturn, the moon and the Beehive cluster. There's a nice pairing  of 
the cluster and Saturn from now through June,  with a nearly full 
moon above, next to and below Saturn.

Over the past weekend, we showed this starry view, along with Saturn 
and the moon, to about 500 people through 6 telescopes in Monrovia. 
We all had a great time, despite partial clouds.
