Saturn will officially reach opposition on Monday, July 20.
Although Saturn will be at peak brightness, it may blend in with nearby stars.
One easy way to find it is to look for Jupiter, which will be incredibly bright and not too far away from Saturn. They will both rise in the evening in the southeastern sky, with Saturn appearing just to the left of Jupiter. The duo will glow side-by-side throughout the night, setting in the southwest around sunrise.
The comet will be visible only through about July 23, so people outside looking for Saturn should also turn around and try to spot NEOWISE before it fades away as it heads back into the depths of the outer solar system.
Saturn will continue to shine next to Jupiter through the rest of the summer, but it will gradually become dimmer heading into the autumn as it moves farther and farther away from the Earth.
