As for Saturn, the ringed planet will be reaching the state of opposition on Wednesday, June 27, which means it will be at its closest to Earth, and, as pointed out by the Express, best viewed in the constellation of Sagittarius.

The moon will appear in the sky to the north or northeast, with Saturn appearing below the Strawberry Moon.

The Strawberry Moon has also been called the Rose Moon and the Honey Moon.

In addition to Saturn's mesmerising appearance in the sky, the astronomers still are witnessing a breathtaking Jupiter's view in this month itself.

Following the full moon and Saturn tandem would be the "Strawberry Moon", or summer's first full moon on Wednesday which will rise around 12:53 a.m. ET on Wednesday, or 12:53 p.m.in the Philippines which could make viewing nearly impossible in the country.

The moon won't necessarily look like a strawberry, but it can take on a reddish tint and appear unnaturally large.

The moon will begin to rise at 8:24 p.m. If you can organize a camping trip, go as far as you can from civilization to get the darkest sky showing the brightest details of a starry night.

Just prior to the time when the Strawberry Moon would achieve its peak, the sixth planet, Saturn would be just at the opposite of the Sun. The moon will rise at 8:05 p.m.in NY, with sunset at 8:31 p.m.

This is the second of three oppositions in as many months, coming after the Jupiter opposition in May and preceding the Mars opposition in July. It will not look significantly different than any other full moon. This constellation is not the easiest to identify, because its stars are rather faint and it never rises high in the United Kingdom sky.

People planning to look at Saturn through a telescope should wait until the middle of the night when the planet is high in the sky rather than near sunset or sunrise when Saturn is near the horizon.
