Got to see Jupiter and Saturn in the same eyepiece

I was fortunate tonight to get a clear night to see the celestial event of a millennium.

Saturn was directly above Jupiter and I ran home to get my telescope and find some open sky in our neighborhood park.

It was incredible, there was a man from the house across from the park and I was able to show him the view. It was the first time he saw Saturnís rings through a telescope. You could also see the 4 Galilean moons.

So in one eyepiece you had Saturn and Jupiter. Very cool!

My wife and daughter also got to check it out.

I doubt tomorrow will be clear as we are expecting rain/snow so I am happy to have gotten the chance to see it tonight. I hope others did as well.
