Neptune rise and set in Alert

Up some of the night. Use binoculars.

Neptune is visible more than 7 hours during 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.
