Gas Giants – Near & Far!


Recently I spotted this planet shining brightly from the comfort of my bedroom window…

Winding out the zoom to max, I resolved this…

“Venus?” I mused. “Mars maybe?” But checking it out on-line, I discovered that it was one of three possible gas giants – those being Jupiter, Saturn, or Uranus. It’s probably Jupiter or Saturn, but I do so hope that it’s Uranus: because if that is the light from Uranus; then this is the light from Myanus…

There, you learn something useful every day. Gas giants: they come in all shapes and sizes.
