URANUS

Sky at Night Magazine - - DECEMBER -

BEST TIME TO SEE:

1 De­cem­ber, 21:00 UT AL­TI­TUDE: 46º LO­CA­TION: Pisces DI­REC­TION: South

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.
