Saturn rise and set in Kiruna

Up almost all night.

Saturn is roughly in the opposite direction of the Sun in the sky, and is, therefore, visible most of the night. This is the best time of the year to view the planet. 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.
