Sky Watch - Eye on the Sky

August 29 - Neptune at Opposition 
It should be a good night to drop by the Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory! Neptune, the blue giant planet, will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. This is the best time to view and photograph Neptune. However, due to its extreme distance from Earth, it will only appear as a tiny blue dot in all but the most powerful telescopes. Reference
