Strawberry Moon: Everything You Need to Know About June's Rose Moon

Watch the Moon Swing by Jupiter Tonight

This means it is the best time of the year to view Saturn in the sky, as it makes a close approach with the Moon and comes the closest to Earth it will all year.

As the moon nears its full phase, Saturn will reach opposition meaning it and the Sun are at opposite sides of the Earth. It will rise in the east around sunset and slowly make its way across the sky before setting in the west around sunrise. If you can organize a camping trip, go as far as you can from civilization to get the darkest sky showing the brightest details of a starry night.

Should you miss Wednesday's night-sky show, a almost full moon may cast a strawberry hue once again Thursday night, with Saturn shimmering nearby.

Although a full moon may only be visible for a day, the visibility of Saturn in the night sky will remain for several more months.

However, it will gradually become dimmer later in the summer and will set earlier and earlier each night.

"With a decent pair of binoculars you'll be able to see that the object you are looking at is not the standard circle shape of a planet", read a statement from Royal Observatory Greenwich quoted by the Express.

"Cloud-free conditions will lead to uninterrupted views of Saturn for much of the western and central United States on Wednesday night", the website reports.

Saturn will also serve as a reference point to help people spot a large asteroid.
