Uranus on view

Uranus, the first planet discovered since antiquity, is well on view these nights.

It is a 6th magnitude object, so binoculars will suffice. At low magnification, it looks exactly like a star.

The planet is now in Pisces, about 2° south of epsilon Piscium.

The chart (a reduced version from Sky-High 2014) show the path of Uranus till near the end of the year.
