Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.
This week’s Astro Biz is the Saturn Building in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. The Saturn Building features some street-level business spaces such as a bank, a wine and whiskey bar, and a skin care business. The building contains a variety of other work spaces of various sizes to meet the needs of many different sorts of businesses. The building in Fremont, the self-proclaimed center of the universe, has a big globe of the planet Saturn on its roof, and is right across the street from the Fremont Rocket.
We chose Saturn this week because the ringed planet was at opposition to the Sun last Friday and will be beautifully placed for observing all summer.
