Quick question: Is Saturn visible to me right now?

I am pretty sure it isn't but my father seems to believe that a particular speck of light in the sky at the moment is Saturn, or another planet.

It is white, fairly bright, and flickering which leads me to believe it is a satellite.

If Saturn was visible, wouldn't it be red because of the red shift, fairly dull, and constant?
