You Can See the Rings of Saturn from Brooklyn Bridge Park

Up until now we had assumed that Saturn was a pretty but totally fanciful illustration made up for the cover of magazines.

Hot damn! It's awe-inspiring to see it with your own eyes, rings and all, up in the sky over Brooklyn.

If you want to see Saturn, Mars, the moon and whatever else happens to be floating overhead at night, the Amateur Astronomers Association sets up telescopes every Thursday night from 8:30-10:30pm at Brooklyn Bridge Park at the Pier 1 Promenade.
