Astro Biz: Saturn Corporation


Though Saturns have been out of production since 2009, there are still some on the road. We spotted this one down near Alki Beach.

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 Corporation, which was a subsidiary of General Motors. Saturn was founded in 1985 and was discontinued in 2010, though the last Saturn vehicles were produced in 2009.

We chose Saturn as this week’s Astro Biz because the planet Saturn will be at opposition on Friday, and will be well placed for viewing the rest of the summer.
