"Besides the fact that Saturn
, Earth and Sun are all falling in one straight line, tomorrow the UAE will witness a partial lunar eclipse."
The National Geographic reported that the optimal position happens when Saturn
reaches its 'biggest and brightest showing for the year.'
While it may seem like an easy thing to measure the length of a day on a planet, it's actually difficult to pin down a precise day length for a gaseous planet like Saturn
. This question has apparently stumped scientists for decades as they cannot observe steady landmarks through the clouds, which is what they usually do for rocky planets.
Following the full moon and Saturn
tandem would be the "Strawberry Moon," or summer's first full moon on Wednesday which will rise around 12:53 a.m.
Mercury and Saturn

orbits the Sun far beyond the Earth, and beyond even the orbit of Jupiter.
Since many of the contractors working on the Saturn
and Apollo programs also happened to be heavily involved in the commercial aviation industry, it didn't take long for companies like Boeing, Douglas, Rockwell International and Pratt and Whitney to adopt the same concepts behind the Saturn
V's scalability for their own products.
Just like comets, planets such as Saturn
and the Earth have a "tail"-known as the magnetotail - that is made up of electrified gas from the Sun and flows out in the planet's wake.
Never in the history of humanity have we spotted the creation (or destruction) of a moon aACAo and, more importantly (at least as far as science is concerned), this could tell us a lot about how Saturn
's larger moons formed over the last few billion years.
