    Saturn does not actually orbit the earth. Both earth and Saturn revolve around the sun. Saturn's revolves around the sun in about 29.5 earth days as @ninetheently has indicated. Saturn and Earth are roughly in the same plane. So, Saturn and Earth will line up at some point. Since the earth's orbit is not exactly circular, I would think that the exact time varies with where the earth is in it's orbit when the clock starts. How much? I don't know.

    Saturn orbits our sun, not earth.

    Saturn does not orbit the Earth, it orbits the sun and takes about 29 Earth years to go around the sun once.

    Let's start with the fact that Saturn doesn't orbit the Earth.  After that, the rest of your question is moot.

    Even though Saturn is not orbiting the Earth, it is going around it.  A Saturnian year is 29.4 Earth years.

    Because the earth is 10 times closer to the sun than Saturn is, it's not unreasonable to think of Saturn as orbiting the earth.  Right now Saturn is in the direction of the constellation Capricorn, whereas back in 2014 it was in the direction of the constellation Scorpio.  It takes nearly 30 years to orbit the sun, so that's about how long it takes to "orbit the earth."

    Saturn orbits the Sun not the Earth.  The Sun is the center of our solar system.
