Saturn Lost in the Sunset

Over the coming week we will lose Saturn to the Sun’s glare as it slides lower into the sunset. Today the planet is only 13° from the Sun, by the 13th the separation will have diminished to about 10°.

Saturn will pass through superior conjunction on October 24th to re-appear in the dawn sky during early November.
