Saturn rise and set in Helsinki

View after sunset.

Saturn can best be seen in the hours just after sunset. Visibility improves as the sunlight fades. It is quite close to the horizon, making it fainter because the light has to cover a larger distance when traveling through the Earth's atmosphere. Make sure to get an unobstructed view.
