There are stunning images of Saturn and its rings.

The news chopper with WRC-TV, NBC 4 in Washington, D.C. captured video of the planet Thursday night.

It's the second night in a row the chopper has gotten clear views of the ringed planet.

However, you'll want to keep an eye on the sky over the next 10 days.

Saturn and its neighbor Jupiter are appearing closer together than they've been in centuries. In fact, on December 21, stargazers may see one large star in the sky as the two planets draw close together.

The last time they were that close was 1623.
