Saturn without rings until September?

If you are a fan of viewing Saturn then you might want to note that it's rings will be tilted edge-on to the Earth from August 10, 2009 to September 4, 2009, making them impossible to see even with a telescope. You are lucky to witness such a rare event such as this alignment with earth and the rings as it only occurs every 14 to 15 years.
