Saturn in Opposition

The planet Saturn is presently at its closest approach  to Earth.  In order to see the rings you’ll need a small telescope.  A bird spotting scope works well for this.  If you can find Jupiter, the brightest “star” in the sky and the  bright red planet Mars, you can find Saturn by continuing east in the line between the two obvious planets.  Or you can get “Sky Map,” an app that does all the work for you.
