Neptune rise and set in South Pole

Up all night. Use binoculars.

Neptune is up all of the polar night. It is very 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 with as little light pollution as possible. Very faint, use binoculars.
