There are very few things about which it is said that they change lives. I have met people several times who said, after seeing Saturn for the first time through a telescope their lives changed or they developed a fondness for astronomy or they decided to obtain a degree in Astronomy. And actually, if you look above towards Saturn without a telescope, it will look like a normal star.
Although it is a planet, it will look like a star. But even with a small telescope you can see its rings around it.
