*Birth anniversaries*
June 5, 1819: John Couch Adams was a prominent English astronomer. He is best remembered for his mathematical prediction of the location of a previously unknown planet that was disturbing the orbit of Uranus. Independently, French mathematician Urbain LeVerrier made a similar calculation, but from LeVerrier's prediction Neptune was discovered at the Berlin Observatory.

June 8, 1625: Giovanni Domenico Cassini (also known as Jean Dominique Cassini) was born in Italy, but later settled in France. He was the director of the Paris Observatory for many years. Among his many achievements were his studies of Saturn, including the discovery of four of Saturn's moons. This was the inspiration for the name of NASA's Cassini Mission to Saturn.
