Hallo,

yesterday suddenly the skies cleared up here at my place so I decided to oberserve Mars and Saturn.For me Saturn is always a difficult planet for sketching.Yesterday I also saw two moons of Saturn,Titan and Rhea.

Yeah, I observed nice Titan position yesterday too. After one hour it was noticeable that he moved along Saturn. Thanks for sharing

Markus,

Nicely done on both sketches and I enjoy both. I do think I agree with you and like your second sketch the best. I love the shadows you've captured of the planet. I'm glad you got a break in the clouds to observe.

Markus,

Ah very nice sketches. I see that the southern hemisphere of the planet looked a little darker than the northern one. That is an excellent freehand sketch.

Hallo Frank and mathteacher,

thank you very much for your friendly comments.

@ Frank :

I was inspired by your fantastic b/w and coloured Mars sketches you show us here in the forum ,so I got the idea and tried a coloured Saturn.

Markus,

Excellent observations of Saturn and it's satellites. It is interesting to watch the satellites change positions over time. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Hallo Carlos,

thank you very much .It looks a little crazy to see Titan "over" Saturn.I never saw this view before.
