It looked just like this.

A couple of weeks ago I pulled out my little telescope (do not be impressed – it’s one my brother got for Christmas when he was about seven years old) and aimed it for a bright spot in the east. After a couple minutes of tweaking, I focused in on Saturn. Saturn. Which is around 800 million miles from earth. I stood in my back yard and looked at something 800 million miles away. It was the oddest feeling, as if God put Saturn there just for me to see on this night. But then I realized it’s entirely possible that He thought about that when He created that planet.
