Sky watchers, you’ll be able to spot our seventh planet this week without a telescope – as long as you know exactly where to look.
According to Space.com, Uranus will appear within the constellation Aries and near Mars between 11:30 am to 4 pm. It will appear as a “small, blue-green featureless disc”.

The planet would be barely visible to the naked eye, as it would still be relatively dim compared to the rest of the things. But we are approaching Amavasya on 17 September, which means that Uranus will not have to compete with Moonlight.
Uranus is currently about 1.77 billion miles from Earth. While it will be visible with the naked eye, binoculars will be even more helpful. Space.com advised looking at a star chart before attempting to find the planet.
Take yourself to a dark place and concentrate; Uranus will only be visible for a few days.
