Saturn rise and set in Höfn

Most of the night until sunrise.

Saturn is visible during most of the night, but it is best viewed in the early morning hours and until sunrise. It is very 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 with as little light pollution as possible.
