Look for Uranus near Venus in the early morning sky on Sunday

The brilliant planet Venus will shine near Uranus before sunrise early Sunday (June 12), acting as a bright signpost for stargazers hoping to spot the more distant (and dim) gas giant in the night sky.

Venus is currently visible in the morning sky before sunrise and can be found low in the eastern sky. The planet Uranus is not visible to the naked eye, but can be seen with binoculars or a telescope. It can be found at the top left of Venus.
