According to the EarthSky website, the Earth is orbiting between the Sun and Uranus. It is currently in the opposite position to the sun which is the reason why it’s so close.

This means that the planet will shine like a faroff star in the sky. The planet can be seen at the border of the constellation of Pisces and in the southwest corner of Aries.

Uranus is the third largest planet in diameter in the solar system and was the first planet to be discovered via a telescope in 1781, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
