I saw so much tonight I couldn't help myself...First Venus, then the ISS followed by the shuttle...I then picked Saturn out, viewed, picked my jaw back up and decided to take a stab at some nighttime sketching, be gentle...

I used white paper with an aquamarine pencil...I scanned in PS and inverted to get the colors I wanted...

I enjoyed your sketch of Saturn, and though I got out last night for about 3 hours (1st time in about a month) it was cloudy tonight so no ISS etc.
