14th July 2016

The first image for 2016 – this image, taken on July 14th - which is considered fairly “early” for the 2016 Uranus apparition/season. The start of an “apparition” is when any planet reappears in the morning sky after it seems to have disappeared into the West in the early evening sky – that is, it is actually getting so close to the Sun before disappearing behind it. (as seen from Earth)

Some time later (months in reality) it will “re-appear” in the early morning twilight…the start of the next apparition.

We were actually lucky to get this image of Uranus so early in fact…dawn was approaching & being such a dim planet as seen from Earth we only just managed to capture it before the sky became too light to image…& even luckier that we managed to also capture the 5 major moons of Uranus as well! ;)
