How to find and observe Neptune this year

October 11, 2020

Locate and observe Neptune!


Neptune may be far, but it is suprisingly easy to see - even in binoculars. The trick is knowing where to look, and I've got a couple tricks to make tracking down this planet super easy and simple. 


For one, it's like any starhop: First you need to know the general area to look, and the bright "signposts" to guide the way. Then locate the right place to aim, and lastly, the pattern of stars that gets you close enough to know that you're there. 

Here's how to do that, step by step - finding Neptune, the easy way.
