Tonight's Sky for April 6: Uranus at Conjunction

Today, the planet
Uranus has reached conjunction with the Sun. What does that mean? In layman's terms, Uranus will be directly opposite the Sun as seen from Earth in a Uranus, Sun, Earth alignment. End result: the planet will be at its worst point for viewing. As a point of trivia, for the inferior planets (which go through conjunction when they pass opposite and between the Earth and Sun) this would be called a superior conjunction.
