September 16, 2011 Jupiter rises just to the right of the Moon in mid-evening and sticks with it as they climb high across the sky later on. It looks like a brilliant star. Through binoculars, Jupiter’s four largest moons look like tiny stars quite near the planet.
September 17, 2011 Some of the oldest stars in the galaxy congregate in the globular cluster M2. It is in the southeast at nightfall and wheels high across the south later on. Through binoculars, it looks like a fuzzy patch of light in the northwestern corner of Aquarius.
September 18, 2011 Aldebaran, the bright “eye” of Taurus, the bull, is close to the lower right of the Moon as they rise shortly before midnight tonight and stays with the Moon as they climb high up the southern sky in the wee hours of the morning.
