Neptune will be in Conjunction with Sun on February 26th. This means that Sun will be in between earth and Neptune. At this point, the planet will be farthest from earth and the distance between earth and Neptune will be 463,75,33,991 km that is 31 times the distance between earth and Sun. We will have to wait until last part of March to see the planet in the morning skies when it rises one hour before sunrise. A good pair of binoculars or a small telescope is good enough to spot the planet Neptune. Here are star charts to find the planet Neptune towards end of March.
