2020, March 2: Brilliant Venus Near Planet Uranus


Venus and Uranus, March 2, 2020
2020, March 3: Venus is 6.3° to the lower right of Uranus.

Under the brightness of a First Quarter phase moon, Venus gleams brilliantly in the west.  This week this bright planet approaches and passes the planet Uranus.  This evening Venus is 6.3° to the lower right of Uranus.  Use a binocular to locate Uranus in the star field.

Venus passes to the right of Uranus.  The separation is about 2.3°, about one-third of tonight’s separation.

Here’s more information about Venus this week.
