Watch the moon eclipse Uranus this weekend – the best time to look at the night sky
THE Moon is set to eclipse Uranus again, but it will only be visible from a handful of locations on Earth.
Uranus, the third largest planet in our solar system, will pass behind the moon on Saturday, January 28th.
Tomorrow night, amateur astronomers and space enthusiasts in Greenland, parts of Canada and Alaska may be able to see the sight.
However, stargazers should be reminded that visibility in the night sky is unpredictable.
While scientists can warn people when an iridescent display should appear, little is predictable as to how visible it will be at night.
A cloudy sky can quickly ruin sightseeing plans.
Observers in Alaska must look up at the sky sometime between 3:38 p.m. and 4:24 a.m. local time to see the display.
Canadians should keep their eyes peeled between 6:42 p.m. and 4:53 a.m.
While stargazers in Greenland can expect the moon to eclipse the blue planet sometime between 09:27 and 04:58.
Northern parts of the world will be adorned with this sight this time.
However, those in the UK will be disappointed as it is unlikely to appear in this part of the sky.
Although locals in the UK were gifted with a view earlier in the year when the moon eclipsed Uranus on New Year’s Day.
Unfortunately for the many who will miss out this time – there’s a long wait until the next one.
The next time Uranus will make this journey past the Moon and be visible from Earth is around September 2029.
