The best time of year to view Saturn's rings is this Friday evening+ READ ARTICLE
Saturn will come closer to earth this weekend than at any other time of the year, giving us earthbound creatures an incomparable view of its rings. For a closer look, “community observatory” Slooh will train Internet-connected telescopes on the planet during peak viewing hours. The images will be shown as a live, hosted feed online.
The broadcast begins above Friday at 9 p.m. E.T., and will include expert commentary from Slooh astronomer Will Gater and Cornell University planetary scientist Dr. Jonathan Lunine.
