This Month’s Sky
The reign of our dazzling planet, Venus, will come to an end by late September, when it will set 45 minutes after the Sun. Venus has been spectacular over the last few months! Also, this month, Jupiter will continue to get closer to Venus and the two planets will put on a great show with the Crescent Moon on September 13th (Illustration1)!
Venus & Jupiter will join Saturn & Mars, once again, for a phenomenal four planet extravaganza (Illustration 2)!! It is great to head outside, this time of year and spend a few minutes enjoying the late summer sounds! We can still enjoy some warm nights, but autumn is just around the corner.
