The ringed planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. Saturn will appear brightest in 2021 during the last days of July and the first days of August. This is the best time to view and photograph Saturn and its moons. A medium-sized or larger telescope or a good pair of binoculars or a spotting scope will allow you to see Saturn’s rings and a few of its brightest moons.
