Mars, Venus and Uranus
The tilt of Saturn's rings is clearly shown here. Note that more of the poles of the planet are visible as the rings tilt. The rings have a 15 year cycle, which explains the drift in this observing cycle. Saturn also has several moons, which are not shown. See Astro Notes for more detail on Saturn and its characteristics.
Nebulae are clouds of space dust. An emission nebula consists of ionized gas and is typically pink or red, with a mixture of blue and violet. A reflection nebula is produced by scattered light from a nearby star, and hence have a color similar to starlight.
