Planet Saturn rises from the east and shines brightly at opposition (closest orbital distance to the Earth). Click the star-pattern icon above the image to see the labels and figures. Constellation Leo, the symbol of spring nights in the northern hemisphere, is notable above Saturn. The landscape in Alborz Mountains of Iran is illuminated by moonlight. Babak Tafreshi/
