On October 8, 2014, a relatively rare phenomenon was observed – the covering of Uranus by the Moon during a total lunar eclipse. Determine in which month the next conjunction of Uranus with the Sun will take place, that is, the Sun will be on the same line between the Earth and Uranus.

Once on October 8, 2014, a lunar eclipse was observed, it means that the Moon was in a full moon, that is, she, and with it Uranus, were in the sky in the opposite direction from the Sun. From this we conclude that Uranus was in opposition. The conjunction of Uranus with the Sun will occur in half the synodic period of Uranus. The radius of the orbit of Uranus is much larger than the radius of the earth’s orbit. Its sidereal period is also much longer than the Earth year. In one Earth year, Uranus passes an insignificant part of its orbit, therefore its synodic period is slightly longer than the Earth year. From this we can conclude that the connection should be a little later than six months later. Since the confrontation took place in early October, the connection will take place in April 2015.
