Southern Skywatch September 2011 Edition Up

Morning sky looking north-east as seen from Adelaide at 6:00 am local time on Sunday September 4 showing the Mars and the constellations. Similar views will be seen elsewhere at the equivalent local time. Click to embiggen.

The September edition of Southern Skywatch is now up. Still without my trusty laptop.

Venus returns to the evening sky late in the month. Mars comes close to the Beehive cluster. Jupiter enters the evening sky, and is now a good telescopic object.

Mercury leaves the morning sky. Saturn leaves the evening sky, after a difficult to observe encounter with Venus and the crescent Moon.

Asteroid Vesta is visible in binoculars. Comet C/2009 P1 is visible in binoculars, comet Elenin has disintegrated.
