On a clear night I can see Uranus…

Having reached opposition this month, Uranus is closer, larger, and brighter than any other time this year. Even though the planet is four times the diameter of Earth, it is so distant – 1.76 billion miles away – that it appears as a small featureless disk even in large telescopes. Almost all our detailed knowledge of the planet comes from the flyby of the Voyager 2 spacecraft in 1986. (October 11, 2015, 12 midnight EDT).
