Uranus buzzes Venus

Over the next few nights Uranus comes to within a few degrees of Venus. This should make a nice view in binoculars. Venus will be very bright and Uranus very dim in comparison so it won’t be an easy observation.

Venus and Uranus, 8th March 2020, 20:00UT, from Abingdon

The two planets will be closest on the 8th March. After that Uranus will move past Venus. By Friday 13th March, Uranus will be just over 5 degrees south of Venus.

Look for the two planets in the evening sky just after 8pm when it gets properly dark.

Clear skies.
