Neptune is the only (official) planet that reamains hidden without the assistance of technology. Tonight is your best chance to catch a glimpse of Neptune at its brightest, when the Earth is exactly in between the sun and Neptune.

Get out your most powerful pair of binoculars, and consider pouring a stiff drink to steady your hands. Use a stargazing app on your phone to find the planet, or look for the constellation of Aquarius and then lower your gaze slightly to the star Phi Aquarii which will Neptune’s neighbor tonight.
