A lucky few will have a rare glimpse of one of the solar system’s outer planets disappearing behind Earth’s moon.

Uranus, which is visible only through a telescope, will disappear behind the moon during an occultation on Saturday (Jan. 28), and people in the far north of the world and a portion of Asia will have the chance to watch it.
