Saturn will come very close to the Earth! We can see directly with the naked eye.
Saturn Planet appeared very close to Earth on Monday. Saturn was closest to Earth around 11:30 in the morning. Due to the day in India, the countrymen cannot see Saturn in the sky at the moment.
Pathani Samanta Planetarium’s director Shuvendu Patnaik said, “we can see the Saturn planet from where the night is said the director of the Pathani Samanta Planetarium.
Shuvendu Patnaik told the news agency that they would brightly see Saturn from that place wherever there is night. In this case, people can see Saturn with the naked eye.
“Saturn is 11:30 a.m. Indian time and the closest time in the world,” he said. This time is the day in India, but wherever there is night, Saturn Planet can be seen.
Patnaik said that where the Earth rotates on the sun once in 365 days, Saturn takes about 29 and a half years to do that.
He said, ‘Earth and Saturn come close to each other once a year as they rotate in their orbits. At the end of 1 year and 13 days, Saturn and Earth come closer to each other.
Earlier, on July 20, 2020, the two planets came close to each other. Then again, on August 14, 2022, Saturn-Earth will come closer ‘.
When Saturn and Earth come closer, the distance between them is about 120 crore kilometers on average. At other times this distance is 160 crore kilometers.
Shuvendu Patnaik claims that Saturn-Earth is moving so close that even a few satellites of Saturn can be seen with a small telescope.
He said that after moving closer, the two planets gradually moved away again. In that case, India’s people will see Saturn brightly in the night sky with the naked eye throughout August.
