Thank you to our Van and onnie Astronomer Herb Schwartz for sending us the information about the Cassini spacecraft photographing Earth through the rings of Saturn today...and they're asking us to jump into the shot! Cassini's cameras will be trained on Earth at 4:27PM (Iowa time). The body of Saturn will eclipse the sun so that the rings are magnificently backlit. Earth will appear as a tiiny blue speck just outside the E ring. Go outside, face East and wave at the blue sky.
Lisa Gray, the new manager at The Good Feet Store, joined us in the studio this morning. For today, Saturday and Sunday only, receive $50.00 off a purchase of $100.00 or more! Be sure to tell them Van and onnie sent you! They're located at 11113 Plum Drive, just inside the northwest corner of I-80/35 (exit 127), right across from Super Target.
Monday, be sure to be listening to find out where John Sellers lands and what time he lands in the hot air balloon for your chance to win a hot air balloon ride of your own during the Indianola National Balloon Classic.
Have a great weekend!
