Since I Have Nothing Original to Say About the Shutdown, Let’s All Look at Uranus

Seriously.  How many different ways can I say that the current GOP has lost its bleeding mind?

So go outside tonight and look for Uranus.  It is just barely naked eye visible, and pretty easy to find with binoculars.  If you have a telescope, you should be able to resolve it into a disc right now, and may even be able to catch a few of its moons.

Here is a link to Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy on observing Uranus, a guide from Sky and Telescope, and a guide from Universe Today.  Happy gazing.
