And that is how a previous blog posting began. So here we are once again on a day when the Moon is near the planet Uranus. However unlike last August this time it is a waxing first quarter Moon near Uranus while the two are setting. But like the last time the pair are again within the constellation of Pisces the Fishes. And Uranus still ‘shines’ at just under 6th magnitude so it is possible to see the 7th planet from the Sun with binoculars. However the reflected light from the Moon will brighten the sky enough to drown out the dimmer light from Uranus and most other stars in the area making them not easily seen.
