* Saturn brightens this month from magnitude -0.1 to -0.2 (brighter objects have smaller magnitudes). The rings, everybody's favorite, can be seen with a small telescope. They're currently tilted toward us at 18. Saturn itself has an off-white, somewhat yellowish color. Like Jupiter, horizontal bands can be detected through a telescope, though they don't stand out as much as Jupiter's.



Almost any telescope will show Saturn's brightest moon, eighth-magnitude Titan. Several other moons become visible in larger scopes, including Enceladus, Tethys, Dione and Rhea.
