Uranus, the first planet discovered since antiquity, is well on view these evenings.
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 3° south-west of the 4th mag star epsilon Piscium.
The chart (a reduced version from Sky-High 2014) show the path of Uranus till near the end of the year.
