Bad news. Saturn will disappear. So if you want to see it, you probably won't be able to do it. Did you think that Saturn would disappear like a planet? No, it doesn't go away, it just won't be visible for a while. From February 4 (that is, yesterday), Saturn reaches the conjunction of the Sun, so it will be hidden behind the Sun and we will not be able to see it.

 

For a while it will no longer be visible from Earth, but it will return to the visible sky soon. Astronomers tell us that Saturn will be visible again in a few weeks. The planet with rings will be able to be seen gradually when it starts to come out of the conjunction and only after approx. 6 months will reach an opposition and will be visible all night. 

Bad news. Saturn will disappear. So if you want to see it, you probably won't be able to do it. Did you think that Saturn would disappear like a planet? No, it doesn't go away, it just won't be visible for a while. From February 4 (that is, yesterday), Saturn reaches the conjunction of the Sun, so it will be hidden behind the Sun and we will not be able to see it.

Even if you want to capture this moment and you have little chance of seeing Saturn, do not look directly at the Sun, astronomers warn us. It greatly affects the eyes. Use only special equipment and glasses. But it will be very difficult to see Saturn, you will probably see a little small point because the planet during this period, it reaches the greatest distance from the Earth. 

It would be good to use applications if you want to capture different moments with the help of the telescope, however these moments are a bit difficult to capture. A very good application that you can use is here.

We wish you success and wear appropriate glasses if you want to see the conjunction.
