On October 19, Uranus (the planet) will be at its closest point to Earth. It will be “just” 2.7 billion kilometers (1.7 billion miles) from Earth, compared to its most distant position of 3.2 billion kilometers (2 billion miles).
Uranus might just about be visible with the naked eye. With binoculars or a telescope, you should more easily be able to spot it near the constellation of Pisces in the southeast sky.
Astronomy magazine mentioned that the planet will be especially visible because it will be so high (Uranus will be at its highest position in the sky during opposition since February 1963).
Although amazing, Uranus is quite the weird one. Watch the video below to find out what I mean!
