Saturn on April 12th, And now less then 96hrs to opposition (closest) to us!. The Rings are getting brighter due to the Seeliger Effect ( light rays reflecting towards us from ice and stony materials on the rings ) and the shadow behind the globe has moved completely behind the globe for the next couple of days and then re-appearing on the opposite side.
