Saturn and its rings will be paying a ‘close’ visit to Earth Sunday night. Saturn is at ‘opposition’ that day, meaning the planet and the sun are on opposite sides of the Earth. That also means the ringed planet is as close to the Earth as it gets all year long.

Event Program: 

  • Lecture explaining the Opposition of Saturn
  • Q & A Session
  • Telescope Observation
  • Astrophotography of the planet using a phone
