Well, there's no transit of Uranus, but there's an opposition of Uranus, which is the point where Uranus is closest to Earth. So, Uranus will appear bigger and brighter in the night sky if you can find it.

Yes Tongue That's a conjunction of Uranus too, where you can't see Uranus in the sky. Uranus is a superior planet after all Big Grin

I've heard it said that if we want to find alien life we should search for Klingons around Uranus.

On the moons of Uranus? Uranus is a giant gas planet. Klingons can't land on Uranus, there's no land to start with. It's full of gas Smile
