A Great Chance to Observe Saturn

Saturn passes opposition on June 15 and this will be a good time for you to look at it. This year is the period when Saturn’s ring appears to incline the most. When you view Saturn with a telescope, it seems as though the greatly inclined ring surrounds Saturn's body completely.
