Uranus is visible in night sky

The solar system’s seventh planet, Uranus, recently was at opposition from Earth and is currently visible with binoculars if you know where to look in the night sky.

You’ll want to look near the border of the constellations Pisces and Cetus. This Universe Today report should help.

The best time to observe is around midnight local time.
