September Night Sky: Mercury is brightest and easiest to spot in the morning sky from Sept. 6 to 20. Venus passes the much-fainter
bluish star Regulus (in Leo, the lion) on the morning of Sept. 20; Venus and the star appear low in the east-northeast predawn sky,
separated by only half a degree. This is an "off" year for Mars, dimming to about the brightness of the North Star. But next year in late July
the Red Planet comes closer to Earth since 2003. Mars rises in the September morning sky after the 11th and teams up with Mercury on
the morning of the 16th. Jupiter is sinking fast in the evening sky hidden behind the Sun in November. All month Saturn is well placed in the
Southern sky, even for small telescopes of at least 30 power. Full Harvest Moon Sept 6th, New Moon the 20th.
