    Actually, according to my copy of Skymap 3, the current Magnitude for
    Uranus is 5.7, which should make it *just* visible to the naked eye
    under a good dark sky; I think it's generally accepted that under
    dark, clear skies someone with good eyesight can see down to about
    magnitude 6. It may well be true that it wasn't discovered as a
    planet until 1781, but that's probably because it was too dim to
    notice, unlike the other planets - but it is still visible to the
    naked eye. In addition, you're referring to European knowledge; we
    don't know for sure about what may have been known by some of the
    South American civilisations, which made excellent observations.

    John Flamsteed actually saw Uranus five times! He recorded it on March
    4,5 and 10, 1715, for instance, so it's surprising he didn't notice
    movement. Bode saw it once, and Lemonnier 13 times.
    But people looked at the stars in a different way. The variable star
    Algol was only recognised as such in 1672, though it gets as bright as
    mag 2.

    But it took a long time before the other 4 observations were found to
    be such - it was the 1690 one that led to the first decent orbital
    determination - the others were picked up when Uranus didn't fit that
    orbit (thanks to Neptune).

    Between 4th and 10th March 1715, Starry night has RA changing by less
    than a minute, Dec by 5 mins - hmm ... missable but I suspect
    Flamsteed may be kicking himself as he turns in his grave.

    Cheers
