    Looking at Stellarium 10:02pm Monday 13th tomorrow night the planet Uranus will be at 180 degrees ie to the south. So a clear night and something with reasonable power, the planet might be in a good position to locate and observe.

    Had a look at it at the last Blackheath Observing session, and must say that it was difficult to even discern it as a disk.

    Always worth a look, but don’t expect to see too much!

    I think its still worth a look.  I did get it in my 8″ scope last time (after comically looking at a slight greenish star and thinking that was Uranus…I had kicked the tripod leg so was out of alignment).  But I could make out a disc, although quite small and had an in-between green-bluish tint


    We have another opportunity at this Friday’s Blackheath Stargazing and it coincides with the Leonid’s meteor shower so we might catch a bright meteor or two if we lucky.
