Alatar--

Color vision requires more light than small telescopes can gather off an object like Saturn. You can get some color from Jupiter and Mars under good conditions, but they are notably brighter.

My Dad has long been fond of gazing at the stars. I confess that my own interests are more earthbound. Nevertheless, I have a song for the occasion:

The Comet at Yell'ham

It bends far over Yell'ham Plain,
And we, from Yell'ham Height,
Stand and regard its fiery train,
So soon to swim from sight.

It will return long years hence, when
As now its strange swift shine
Will fall on Yell'ham, but not then
On that sweet form of thine.


Poem by Thomas Hardy
Beautifully set to music by Gerald Finzi
