Saturn

On February 29, 2009, The Hubble captured this image of all four of Saturn's moons as they passed in front of their mother planet. These transits are very rare and can be seen only when Saturn's rings are at a certain angle.

Italian Galileo Galilei, who is considered the father of astronomy, was the first to observe Saturn through a telescope in 1610.
