Skywatchers: How to See Saturn at Opposition


“You shouldn’t mistake it for anything else. There are some bright spots up in the sky, but they’re going to be in the west mostly.” 

“Sunday night into Monday morning much of the Midwest and portions of western California will see mostly clear skies,” Haley Brink, CNN meteorologist said. “A swath of cloudy skies will exist across the Northwest into the Rockies, across many southern states, and into the Northeast.”

If it’s too cloudy in your area during the first week of August remember that Saturn will remain bright in the sky for the rest of the month. And it should be visible for the rest of the year.
