Mag. +5.7 Uranus is well positioned, reaching its highest point in the sky during darkness all month. It does this earlier with each passing day, reaching this position at 21:00 UT on the 1st but 19:00 UT at month end. Although its 3.6-arcsecond disc doesn’t easily give up any secrets, it’s worth viewing just to see its wonderful greenish hue.
