Saturn rise and set in Point Lay
After sunset and most of the night.
Saturn is visible during most of the night, but it is best viewed in the late evening hours after sunset. 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.
