Saturn at Opposition in 2015
I snapped this shot of Saturn on the night of opposition, Saturday May 23rd, when Saturn was on the opposite side of Earth than the Sun. Saturn has been increasing its axial tilt from our point of view with the Summer Solstice (miximum tilt) occuring in May 2017. I snapped this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
