Calling all sky watchers! Saturn, the 6th planet from the sun, will be at opposition this weekend, making it visible to the naked eye. This is a rare opportunity to see the planet in all its glory, as it will be the biggest and brightest it will appear all year long. Saturn will be visible until next February. To view Saturn, simply wait for the sun to set, head outside, and look toward the southeast. If you have binoculars, they will enhance the golden color of Saturn and may even allow you to glimpse its telltale rings. In clear viewing conditions, you may also be able to see Saturn’s largest moon, Titan. If you have a telescope, even a small one, you can observe more details of Saturn’s rings. Many astronomers encourage everyone to experience a Saturn-viewing in their lifetime. The weather for observing Saturn this weekend will be mostly clear but cool. Additionally, the Super Blue Moon, a larger and brighter full moon, will occur on August 30th.
