These next several evenings – September 5, 6 and 7, 2019 – feature the moon and the solar system’s two largest gas giant planets, Jupiter and Saturn. Given clear skies, you can’t miss the moon and Jupiter. Jupiter is simply the brightest starlike object visible.

You’ll also find a reddish star shining close to Jupiter on the sky’s dome. It’s Antares, the brightest star in the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion. Although Antares provides a prime example of a 1st-magnitude star, it nonetheless pales next to Jupiter. Jupiter, which is brighter than any star, is nearly 20 times brighter than Antares.


If your have a telescope, you can see Jupiter's Galilean moons (the four largest moons) and Saturn's rings.

Tonight was supposed to be a harvest moon. Last one for many years. Of course, it is way overcast here in Central Virginia.

Angie, if it will cheer you up a bit, there will be a Harvest Moon next year and all the years after. The Harvest Moon is always the nearest full moon to the September equinox. This Harvest Moon wasn't really a big deal, as the Moon was at apogee (the most distant part of the orbit). I think the hype was about its falling on Friday the 13th (in some places at least), which, obviously, only happens every x number of years.
