Uranus rise and set in Mawson

Up most of the night. Bring binoculars.

Uranus is roughly in the opposite direction of the Sun, so it is visible during most of the 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. You may need binoculars.
