Where should you look to find Uranus?

According to NASA, Uranus will reach “opposition” Thursday night, which means the Earth will move between the planet and the sun in its orbit, making Uranus visible in the sky all night long.

‘It’s visible all night long and its blue-green color is unmistakable, ‘ said Jane Houston Jones from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Space experts say you may be able to see the icy blue planet with the naked eye or a with a little help from binoculars.

Bruce McLure of EarthSky says, ‘Uranus is quite easy to view with binoculars, although it only looks like a rather faint star.

Pinpoint Weather Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser says that clouds are possible, but the planet should still be visible in Colorado. Astronomers and stargazers will be able to see Uranus without a telescope in IN tonight. The cold and windy planet has the third largest diameter in the solar system and uniquely rotates on a tilt.

Uranus is 4 times wider than Earth.

The next time Uranus will be in opposition will be on October 23, 2018.
