2020, March 6: Brilliant Venus continues to approach Uranus.

This evening brilliant Venus is 2.7° to the lower right of Uranus.  Venus continues to move farther into Aries near the three bright stars of the constellation.  Hamal, the brightest, is to the upper right of Venus.

Use a binocular to see the dim bluish planet that resembles a star, even with slight optical magnification.
