Saturn and its rings are entering our evening skies. The planet passed through its western quadrature (90° from Sun) on 2013 JAN 30. For Chicagoland observers it will rise at 23:58 CST on FEB 08 and about four minutes earlier each succeeding night. My more detailed article and graphics related to this year’s apparition can be found at: www.CurtRenz.com/saturn

Photos and descriptions of Saturn and its rings would be welcome additions to this thread.
