Last Quarter 16th
New Moon 24th
Autumn Equinox 20th
Apart from Venus in our evening skies, all the planetary action this month is in the morning sky.
Venus is in the western sky after sunset.
Mercury is low in the eastern pre-dawn sky
Mars is high in the eastern pre-dawn sky.
Jupiter is in the eastern pre-dawn sky.
Saturn is in the eastern pre-dawn sky.
Worth a Look:
19th: A lovely pre-dawn meeting of the waning crescent Moon and Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. The crescent Moon will have Jupiter and Mars above and Saturn below. Definitely worth a look! It is also a great opportunity for widefield photographers.
22nd: The narrow waning crescent Moon is slightly above and to the south (right) of Mercury.
28th: In the western twilight sky, the waxing crescent Moon is above and to the west (left) of the brilliantly shining Venus.
