NASA says that on March 1, 2017, Saturn will be the closest
to Earth than it has ever been in the entire history. This astronomically rare
incident will be very special for everyone including astronomy lovers, scientists
and interested students.
Last couple of years have
been incredible for astronomy as it has seen rising competition among space
giants and emerging players such as India. More notably the Indian
space agency was able to set a record just a few days ago by placing 100
satellites in one attempt using a single rocket.
Search for life on Mars and
a few other newly found earth like planets was the major attraction in the last
few years. However, this rare occurrence that was observed by NASA and other
space agencies said to be a "Breathtaking experience" for all. A NASA
spokesperson said, "I can promise you that this sight is going to be
unlike any other astronomical sights we witnessed before".
He further added, "Saturn
does not often come this close to Earth, and this will be a sight no one
currently living has ever seen." If we are lucky we should also be able to
view 360 degree view of Saturn as it rotates.
360 degree view of the
second largest planet in our solar system has never been photographed yet.
"We are delighted to
see this opportunity to study Saturn better and the opportunity people get to
observe this amazing ringed planet" He continued.
"Last time something
similar to this occurred was on 1930 when Saturn came so close, but not as
close as it would this time around."
"We will see this
phenomenal event from 1:13 AM EST in United States and at 7:45 PM ET. in
