URANIAN OPPOSITION

Sunday 27 October from 7:45 pm to 9:45 pm
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.

Due to HRPO being open for this event, there will be no viewing at HRPO on Friday 25 October.
