Southern Skywatch September 2017 edition is now out!
The September edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.
This month Mars enters the morniing sky, but is very hard to see low to the horizon .
Jupiter comes closer to the western horizon and it is harder to watch this banded world in a telescope. Jupiter comes closer to the bright star Spica during this month and is closest on the 11th. On the 22ndg the Moon is just to the right of Jupiter forming a triangle with Spica.
Saturn is still high in the early evening sky this month. This is still a good time to watch this ringed world in a telescope, although the window of good observation is narrowing. On the 26th and 27th Saturn is close to the Moon.
Mercury enters the morning sky this month but is very difficult to see low on the horizon.
Venus gets lower in the morning sky this month. The crescent Moon is close to Venus on the 18th. Later in the morning there is a daytime occultation of Venus, this event is for experienced observers only due to the danger from accident sun exposure.
