Planetary observing lovers are on a date with a special astronomical phenomenon

Fans of planetary observations will be on a date today, Monday, with a distinctive astronomical phenomenon, as Saturn will approach its closest point to the Earth, and the Earth will move between Saturn and the Sun, in an annual astronomical phenomenon, Sky News reported, citing the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, and according to the scientist. In the British Royal Astronomical Society, Robert Maas, Saturn will be easy to observe, because it will appear in a relative vacuum of the sky.

Maas added: "Saturn will appear as a yellow star, and will emit a steady light instead of flickering, and Saturn will shine brighter than the vast majority of stars in the sky."

Mas indicated that Saturn will be the farthest planet you can see with the naked eye, and that the planet's rings can be seen through telescopes, even if they are small.

It is worth noting that Saturn is nine times farther from the Sun than the Earth, and 1.2 billion kilometers from us at its closest point.
