Animation simulates close approach between Earth and Saturn

ISTANBUL (CIHAN)- An animator created a video depicting how Saturn planet would appear in sky if its orbit moved it much closer to earth.

A celestial body reaches opposition when it and the Earth are on opposite sides of the Sun. At that point, the object rises in the east at sunset, stays in the sky all night, and sets as the Sun rises. Saturn is now at its closest distance to the Earth, about 830 million miles away (1.3 billion km), so it appears larger and brighter than usual over the next few weeks.
