URANIAN OPPOSITION

Tuesday 8 November from 7:45 pm to 9:45 pm CST
No admission fee. For all ages.
Binocular recommended.

Uranus♅ is exactly 180 degrees from the Sun☉, rising as the Sun☉ is setting. We are now the closest we’ll be to Uranus♅ this year!

The light-blue, high-ice planet (during these years in the constellation Aries♈) is very compelling. Although rather small due to its distance, its enormous size and unique color allow one to distinguish it from the stars in the constellation Aries♈.

All other outer planets will be seen. Also, the Pleiades!
