Visible planets and night sky September

Saturn is rising before sunset and is perfect for observing all evening.

Jupiter, which is brighter than all the stars, rises near sunset and is visible for the majority of the night. Jupiter will be in opposition on September 26.

Mars is now rising before midnight, and by the end of the month, it will rise around 10 p.m. local time.

Three bright planets arc across the sky on September mornings: Jupiter, Mars, and Venus.

Venus, the brightest planet, can still be seen near the sunrise in early September, but will fade away after a week or so.

Venus will pass most directly behind the sun on October 22 and will reappear in the evening sky before the end of the year.
