Afterwards he went to the Cape Kennedy to paint the first space shuttle launch. It was at the Cincinnati Observatory that he learned of the upcoming Voyager II's encounter with Saturn. He traveled to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and spend the whole time working on this large painting. Unfinished, he hopes to complete it with the new data arriving in from the Cassini spacecraft now at Saturn since July 1, 2004.
