Tonight's Sky for April 9: Uranus at Superior Conjunction

Today, the planet Uranus has reached superior conjunction. 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. For the record, since it is a superior planet, Uranus can only have a superior conjunction as it will never come directly between Earth and the Sun.
