Q. You mentioned Saturn next to the moon on that February lunar eclipse earlier this year, but when will Saturn be seen again in the evening sky?
A. The ringed planet Saturn will not be visible in the evening until around mid-February, when it rises about 8 p.m. in the east. In early October, one hour before sunrise, Saturn is more than 10 degrees above the eastern horizon, but by late October at that time it climbs to more than 30 degrees in altitude, or one-third the way up from the horizon. Saturn is found in the constellation Leo the Lion, far below its bright star Regulus.
