Hello, I’m Saturn. I’m proud to be a part of milky way

Moon’s orbit around the Earth

Tilted to the orbit of the Earth around the Sun – and so most of the time, the moon will pass above or below Saturn in the sky, and no occultation will occur. It is only when Saturn lies near the point that the moon’s orbit crosses the “plane of the ecliptic” that occultations can happen.
