New Planet - See It Yourself

» Where is Xena

 

Look Closely !


If you have a large, high-end telescope and access to dark skies, you can try to pick out "Xena", or 2003 UB313, yourself. For the first half of August, the "10th planet" will be in the constellation Cetus, about 25 degrees above the east-southeast horizon around 2 a.m. each night and will march shoulder to shoulder with Mars across the night sky before disappearing at dawn. It'll be at RA 1h 39.3m, DEC -5 degrees, 21 minutes. The accompanying illustration shows the new world's approximate location.

You'll need a big scope. The Meade 16-inch RCX400 telescope should do the job for you.
