So Friends, let’s have a look at whats up for September, 2018 in the sky?
This month will be dominated by the Milky Way and the Planet Parade. Look in the south western sky just after sunset to catch Venus. See along the ecliptic, from the west to south to the eastern sky to observe Jupiter, Saturn and Mars all through this month.
Through binoculars or a telescope, you can catch Venus’s phase change dramatically from nearly a half phase to a larger thin crescent.
We also have beautiful constellation trail this month- Sagittarius, Aquila, Cygnus and Lyra. Although we don’t have any meteor showers this month you may enjoy the M4 Globular Cluster in Scorpius, Lagoon and Trifid Nebulas in Sagittarius and The Beehive cluster in Cancer if you can get your hands on a small telescope or a pair of binocs. You may even think of hunting for the Andromeda Galaxy if you can stay up for a couple of hours after midnight.
That’s all for September, ’18. Clear skies!
