saturn at opposition

the beautiful ringed planet saturn will be passing very close by tomorrow night (saturday, feb 10)... when it reaches opposition. this is when the sun, earth and saturn line up with earth in the middle... constituting saturn's closest approach to us on earth! look to the east at sunset where saturn will be pretty bright. the bright star, regulus, will be below and a little to the left of saturn.

here's a useful site, which publishes free sky charts each month! very useful!
