Catch the moon pointing to Uranus on Friday

In the early hours of Friday (July 22), the waning crescent moon will be ideally placed to guide you to the tiny 5.8 magnitude dot that is Uranus.

(On the magnitude scale used by astronomers, lower numbers mean brighter objects. For example, at its brightest, the planet Venus shines with a magnitude of about -4.6 (opens in a new tab).)
