Saturn’s Rings Will Disappear- Where Can New York View Them?
Saturn's famous rings will disappear in 2025. Where in New York State can you view them before they vanish?
NASA has confirmed to Daily Mail that you have until 2025 to view the iconic rings of Saturn before Saturn tilts edge-on with Earth, meaning the rings will appear almost as an invisible line. So calm down, they aren't going away forever.
The rings will not be gone for good, however, and will tilt back towards Earth during the next phase of Saturn's 29-year orbit. Astronomers will not get the chance to view Saturn from this unique perspective again until October 2038."
So in short, that's a pretty huge jump in time where we won't see Saturn's rings from Earth. The last time this rare event occurred was in September 2009, and before that, it had not occurred since February 1996.
The rings will continue to become more visible until 2032 when Saturn reaches its maximum tilt away from Earth."
