the Week The Night Sky Story #1 Story #2 Story #3 The Night Sky ISS Sightings NASA-TV Space Calendar Food for Thought Image of the Week Friday, Aug. 30 The Milky Way extends upward from the low south-southwest just after dark. Before the Moon becomes bright later this week, this is your last good chance this year to finally get straight which clumps are the Large Sagittarius Star Cloud (with M8 above it), the Small Sagittarius Star Cloud (a.k.a. M24), the lesser-known Gamma Scuti Star Cloud, and the Scutum Star Cloud on top. In a dark sky they stand out almost ladder-like. See the labeled photo with Fred Schaaf's "Musings on Eternity" in the September Sky & Telescope, page 45. New Moon (exact at 6:37 a.m. on this date EDT.) Saturday, Aug. 31 Altair is the brightest star on the southern side of

the sky companion after dark. (We're not planets orange Tarazed to counting its upper the right by just a finger width at arm's length. Jupiter and Saturn, far to its lower right.) Spot Look to Altair's upper left, by a bit more than a fist, for little Delphinus, the Dolphin. Altair's little Altair is even smaller, fainter Sagitta, the Arrow. Closer above Sunday, Sept. 1 By 9 or 10 p.m. two of the most famous deep-sky objects, the Double Cluster in Perseus and the Great Andromeda Galaxy M31, are in high view in the east. Did you know they're only 22 apart? They're both cataloged as 4th magnitude but to the naked eye they look rather different, the more so the darker your sky. See for yourself; they're plotted on the all-sky constellation map in the center of the September Sky & Telescope, which should be all the map you need to identify their locations. Sky too bright? Use binoculars! The two clusters of the Double Cluster (NGC 869 and NGC 884) are at very similar distances about 7,600 lightyears away. M31, at 2.5 million light-years, is about 330 times farther out. Monday, Sept. 2 Whenever bright Vega crosses nearest your zenith, as it does at nightfall now, you know that the Sagittarius Teapot must be at its highest due south even if it's hidden by buildings or trees (or twilight). The Teapot is currently under Saturn. Two hours later when Deneb crosses closest to the zenith, it's the turn of Delphinus and boat-shaped SkyCapricornus

& Telescope down below to stand at their highest in the south. ISS Sighting Opportunities Story #1 Story #2 Story #3 The Night Sky ISS Sightings NASA-TV Space Calendar ISS For Denver: Date Visible Max Height Appears Disappears Sat Aug 31, 4:33 AM 1 min 55 55 above N
