    Re: Jupiter satellites

    I have no idea how Saturn is currently oriented, but sometimes it's
    pole axis is parallel to Earth's.  When that happens the rings are
    viewed edge on and are more-or-less two blips outside the equator.  If
    you can see the equatorial belts of Jupiter, you should be able to see
    Saturn's rings.
