Neptune - may be seen with binoculars or telescope low in the SW between much brighter Venus and Mercury. It sets around 7pm and by the end of the month disappears from view. 
Uranus - lies on the border of constellations Aries and Pisces and sets around 1130pm

Never look at the Sun with the naked eye or through binoculars or a telescope as doing this will blind you.
