Saturn is rising about sunset – low in the southeast – following Jupiter and ahead of ruddy Mars, both of which are brighter than Saturn. Saturn can be seen without a telescope, it’s about as bright as most of the brightest stars. It will look oblong in binoculars and show that it has rings in spotting scopes and telescopes of 30 power or more.
