Looking for Uranus? On the night of 23 January it can be found less than a degree east of the F-class magnitude 5.2 star Zeta Piscium. Remember, at least a binocular will be needed.

Uranus lies seven degrees higher than the Moon in tonight's darkening sky. Meanwhile, the planet's separation from Zeta Piscium has extended to a full degree. The Starry Night Pro Plus lists Uranus' current magnitude as 5.9.

Uranus and Venus will be fairly close to each other on the morning of Friday the 2nd. Unfortunately, by the time they are both fifteen degrees up (4:52am CDT) the sky will already have begun to brighten. Uranus will hit fifteen degrees on the 11th at 4:15am in darkness, but that full darkness still only last a few minutes. Be patient!
