View Full Version : Uranus Opposes Sun - 2018 OCT 23-24

2018-Oct-22, 04:20 PM
Uranus will appear in opposition to the Sun during the night of 2018 OCT 23-24. At magnitude +5.7 it normally would be visible to sharp naked eyes under dark skies. However the Full Moon barely south (beneath for northern hemisphere observers) of Neptune in Pisces will provide substantial interference. Better viewing opportunities may be presented a week or so on either side of the Full Moon.

Photos and descriptions of Uranus would be welcome additions to this thread. My Uranus and Neptune webpage including ephemerides can be viewed at https://CurtRenz.com/uranep.html
