The Night Sky

Monday, September 2

• Right after dark at this time of year, bright Vega shines almost straight overhead for skywatchers at mid-northern latitudes. Whenever Vega is highest, it's the sign that rich Sagittarius is at its highest in the south. Work through the Sagittarius area with your charts and scope before it sinks low for the night and the season.

Tuesday, September 3

• With the Moon out of the evening sky, now's a good time to see what you can make of the distant galaxy cluster Abell 2666. Its location is easy to find just inside the Great Square of Pegasus. But you'll need a moderately large telescope and a good sky; the cluster's brightest member, giant NGC 7768, appears 12th or 13th magnitude. If you succeed, could this be your record-farthest galaxy? The cluster is 300 million light-years away. Use the finder charts and photo with Ken Hewett-White's "Going Deep" article in the September Sky & Telescope, page 60.

Wednesday, September 4

• The big but dark-colored asteroid 324 Bamberga has brightened to magnitude 8.3. It's nearly at an unusually close, once-in-22-years opposition. Seek it out on the edge of the Circlet of Pisces using the finder chart in the September Sky & Telescope, page 51.

Thursday, September 5

• As evening twilight fades, spot Venus low in the west. Look below it (by less than 2°) for much fainter little Spica twinkling away. Binoculars help. Saturn glows 14° to their upper left.

Friday, September 6

• Spica remains 2° below Venus in twilight, shifted somewhat from yesterday.
