See the moon eclipse Uranus tonight (Sept. 14) in an occultation

On Wednesday (Sept. 14), the moon will pass in front of Uranus in an event called a lunar occultation that will be visible from parts of Africa, Asia, and Europe. 

The occultation will begin at 6:26 p.m. ET (2226 GMT) when Uranus  —  an ice giant planet located towards the outer edge of the solar system  —  begins to disappear behind the moon for about an hour. After this, the planet will emerge from behind the moon.
