Highland Road Park Observatory

SATURNIAN OPPOSITION

Tuesday 26 June from 10:00 pm to 12:00 am
No admission fee. For all ages.
Binocular recommended.

Saturn♄ is exactly 180 degrees from the Sun☉, rising as the Sun☉ is setting. We are now the closest we’ll be to Saturn♄ this year!

The ringed beauty (on this date in the constellation Sagittarius♐) is always a delight. Sometimes a viewer can spy contrasts in the upper cloud deck, as well as the largest moon Titan. Will they be seen this night?

The Cassini spacecraft is gone, leaving behind a treasure trove of images and data. What will be the next mission to Saturn♄?
