By default it shows the sky as you would see it from a defined point on the earths surface at the current system time. Saturn was probably above the horizon but would just be a tiny dot. If you centre on Saturn with the cursor then the space bar to centre it, then use the page up and down keys to zoom in an out. You can zoom right up to the planet like a spaceship would.

You could also select the "sky and viewing" options window select the "markings" tab and click the "ecliptic line" box. This will show you path of the planets, moon and of course the sun across the sky and give you an idea of where they rise and set. The moon and planets will be close to it, the sun of course is bang on.
