Uranus is closer to Earth than it's ever been and this Thursday is your chance to observe the planet with your very own eyes.
The 7th planet from the Sun is 1.7 billion miles away but will be on full display when you look toward the southeast closest to the Pisces constellation. If you happen to have a telescope, NASA said you'll be able to see the blue planet the entire month of October, but for tonight, enjoy Uranus with the naked eye if you can.
Pat, producer Keith, and Jeffy had a little too much fun when it came to chatting about the planet coming into view, but who can blame these heathens. Check out the full clip above to hear their frivolity.
The planet was named by Johann Elert Bode after the Greek god of the sky, Uranus.
Will you be watching Uranus tonight?
