Good time to view the Planet Saturn

The Planet SaturnDuring late April and early May, the planet Saturn will pass through opposition, which means Saturn will be directly in line with the Earth and the Sun and will appear at its brightest, fully illuminated by the Sun.

Also the plane of Saturn’s rings is currently tilted in our direction, making them more prominent, adding to Saturn’s present brightness.

The weather looks very promising for a clear view of Saturn tonight, so take the opportunity while you can to view Saturn it is best, under the clear and less light polluted skies of Rutland.

For information on how to view the planet Saturn please read this observation guide.
