Uranus is really close this Saturday 10/15/16! The planet, that is. In fact, it’s closer to Earth than it will be all year, and you should be able to see the blue-green blur all night long. Planet-gazing should be made easier because Uranus will be fully illuminated by the sun. Not interested or can’t make it? No worries. There are a few more meteor showers this year, and three Supermoons, the first of which can be viewed tomorrow night!
Jeff is a self-proclaimed pragmatic futurist; that is, he has high hopes for absurd life-altering technologies which sound too good to be true, and probably are. Although he writes on a variety of subjects, his real passion is for technological innovation and the people who make it happen. By day, he enjoys fuzzy bunnies, kittens, puppies, roller coasters and a sardonic written word or two. By night, he’s busy running MMR, replaying a random Final Fantasy game, or pretending to be Batman. He currently resides in Upstate NY.
