Tonight, the planet Saturn, 6th from the Sun, will be at opposition. What does that mean? In short, if viewed from above, the Sun, Earth, and Saturn would be in a straight line in that order, with Saturn exactly opposite the Sun in the sky as seen from Earth. End result: Saturn rises as the Sun sets and Saturn sets as the Sun rises, meaning that Saturn is up all night. Oh yes, opposition technically takes place tomorrow but tomorrow brings a very worthy sight that deserves its own article.
