National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has confirmed the news that on June 1, 2016, Saturn will be closest to Earth than it has ever been in the past 10,000 years. This astronomical sight is going to be really special, especially for all astronomy lovers and students.
The last few years have been really incredible for NASA and other space agencies of the world, especially for Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The search of life on Mars has been the major attraction in the last couple of years.
This sight is going to be ‘unlike any other astronomical sight.’
NASA spokesperson George Pooler says-
He says that NASA hopes to see the opposite side of Saturn as it rotates by.
This isn’t going to be an ordinary space event!
“We are extremely excited to be able to study this planet better, but also, that people will be able to get a glimpse of an amazing, ringed planet, which is not something normally able to happen,” Pooler continues.
“In 1930, Saturn came very close, but not as close as it will come this time.”
“We are expecting this worldwide spectacle on June 1st 2016.”
