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.
Join Dubai Astronomy Group to observe the Saturn Opposition at the Al Thuraya Astronomy Center, Mushrif Park – Dubai.
