Want To See Uranus With The Naked Eye? Tonight Is The Night

Earth is between the planet and the sun, so, to our eyes, Uranus will seem brighter than it will any other time of the year. Getting a clear view of Uranus will be aided by the new moon, which will be nonexistent in the night sky.

As you can imagine, thousands of tweets were posted with jokes about being able to see the planet Uranus. Mountains or buildings on the horizon can't get in the way and it will stand out as much as possible against the dark background-perhaps even brightly enough to see with your naked eye, although binoculars will certainly improve your odds.

Uranus will look like a star but will have a blue-green tint.

Uranus is 4 times wider than Earth.

According to NASA, Uranus reaches opposition tonight.

Uranus does have a very faint ring system, notable for sitting vertically to the Sun rather than the standard horizontal sweep, but these will not be visible without the use of an extremely powerful professional telescope, the Daily Express reports.

Tonight, the planet will reach its highest point in the sky at around 00:35 GMT, nearly exactly due south.
