Saturn rise and set in Reykjavik

Up most of the night.

Saturn is roughly in the opposite direction of the Sun, so it is visible during most of the night. 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.
