Neptune rise and set in Antarctica

Up some of the night. Use binoculars.

Neptune is visible more than 13 hours during the polar night. It is quite close to the horizon, making it fainter because the light has to cover a larger distance when traveling through the Earth's atmosphere. Make sure to get an unobstructed view. Very faint, use binoculars.
