How to find Saturn in the sky

June 17, 2013

From Los Angeles (and western states) find the moon, Saturn and Venus in the western-southwestern sky after sunset on July 19th. Saturn appears as a golden “star” brighter than any of the surrounding stars. No telescope required, but the rings and several moons are visible through binoculars or telescopes.
