We took our telescope up the hill: his mother had died not long before and it was something to do.

After the coldest hour of searching we finally found it – Saturn with all its rings!

“See!” I wanted to shout, “perhaps things might be ringed in surprising ways after all.”

  1. Interesting that staring into space provides a distraction away from his mother’s death. Incidentally, we can presently see Venus and Mars without a telescope – but really they are just lighted dots in the sky, but then again if you stand on Venus and look towards Earth, would you see me?

    1. It really did take us an hour of getting completely frozen to find it – and it really was quite an epiphany when we found it. It was a memorable night on the hill…..I’m still not quite sure why the rings seemed so relevant….
