Here’s what the night sky will look like for September 2017


Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and features a look at what the night sky will look like for the month of September 2017.

Saturn will be the only prominent visible planet this month, and you can find it near the constellation Sagittarius. Around Saturn, you’ll be able to see the summer Milky Way stretching from the northeast to the southwest.

Every star you can see without a telescope is part of the Milky Way… except for one. The Andromeda galaxy can be seen with binoculars 0n the opposite side of the sky from Saturn.
