Seeing the 6th planet from the Sun, Uranus.

 If you have not seen the planet Uranus, then you will have a simple task to see this January 20th. Look in the space (sorry about the pun) between the crescent Moon and Mars. You will need some good binoculars or a small spotting scope or a telescope.  About 2 degrees below Mars (width of your pinky) in a scope or binoculars look for the BLUEISH  star like object about equal distance from the Red Planet and waxing crescent Moon. In the scope it will not twinkle as much as a star. 

Well the week,according to weather forecasts, is filled with cloudy weather, thunderstorms and rain. Sorry the 20th is a wet, no go for this event.****
