University of Minnesota September Starwatch
Saturn swoops down on Venus in the middle of September, a month chock full of celestial events.
Wasting no time, September opens with a waning moon high in the east the morning of the 1st. The moon forms a diamond-shaped figure with bright Jupiter highest, fainter Mars lowest, and the brighter Gemini twin, Pollux, opposite the moon. Look for this gathering about an hour before sunrise.
