Check Out the Sky Tonight

By | June 27, 2018

If it’s not too cloudy, get out your telescope tonight and check out Saturn. This from… Tonight, Saturn is “at opposition”–bigger, brighter and closer to Earth than at any other time in 2018. To find the ringed planet, look due south at midnight. You’ll see it shining like a golden star right beside the full Strawberry Moon in the constellation Sagittarius. This is also the best night of the year to see Saturn’s rings. Even a small telescope will show them.

Plus, the University of Alaska’s aurora forecast is currently set at a 5 out of 10. That’s pretty high, so if you’re out there looking for Saturn you might get lucky and see some northern lights as well.
