An Iconic ‘Harvest Moon,’ Fall Equinox And A Glorious ‘Double Star:’ What You Can See In The Night Sky This Week

Sep 20, 2021

AFP via Getty Images Each Monday I pick out the northern hemisphere’s celestial highlights (mid-northern latitudes) for the week ahead, but be sure to check my main feed for more in-depth articles on stargazing, astronomy, eclipses and more. What To Watch For In The Night Sky This Week: September 20-26, 2021 This week it’s all about the full “Harvest Moon,” surely the most well-known apparition of our natural satellite. Traditionally named because its all-night light is said to help farmers get their harvests in (though nowadays surely they use huge floodlights? ), the iconic name actually has less to do with crops and more do with this week’s fall or autumnal equinox—or “equal night.”  The “Harvest Moon” is always the closest full Moon to that important seasonal way marker, which indicates when the Sun crosses the celestial equator heading south to create shorter, cooler days as the northern hemisphere begins to tilt away from our star. Here’s everything you need to know about stargazing and the night sky this week: Monday, September 20, 2021: A full ‘Harvest Moon’ At 23:55 UT today sees perhaps the most famous full Moon of them all—the “Harvest Moon.” The prize is to see it appear in the eastern horizon draped in autumnal oranges and yellows. If there are clear skies then look due east about half an hour after sunset or get the exact times of  moonrise and moonset for your location . Be patient—it will appear! MORE FOR YOU Getty Images Tuesday, September 21, 2021: A second chance ‘Harvest Moon’ plus Mercury and Spica Tonight offers another opportunity to see the full “Harvest Moon” rise into a twilight sky. The action will happen in the eastern sky a little later than yesterday, so in a deeper twilight. Check the the exact times of  moonrise and moonset for your location . Meanwhile, in the west, the smallest planet (Mercury) and the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo (Spica) will be in conjunction right after sunset, separated only by about 1°. It will be a tricky find since they’ll both likely be lost in the mirk of the horizon. Good luck! Tuesday, September 21, 2021: Mercury and Spica in the western sky just after sunset. Stellarium Wednesday, September 22, 2021: Fall equinox At precisely 19:21 UT today it’s the fall or autumnal equinox. It marks the point when the midday Sun is directly above the equator, giving every location on the planet 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. The Sun will rise due east, follow an arc right along the celestial equator and set due west. It’s also known as the southward equinox. Thursday, September 24, 2021: Moon and Uranus Stellarium Thursday, September 24, 2021: Moon and Uranus A 84%-lit waning gibbous Moon will tonight be a mere 1º from the planet Uranus, which makes it a good time to try to spot the seventh planet from the Sun about 1.8 billion miles distant—though you’ll probably need binoculars. Sunday, September 26, 2021: Moon in Taurus Stellarium Sunday, September 26, 2021: Moon in Taurus After midnight and into the pre-dawn hours a 76%-lit waning gibbous Moon will slide between the beautiful Pleiades and the Hyades star clusters in the constellation of Taurus. Look high in the southwest before dawn for these jewels of the night sky that are soon to be post-sunset objects—and with us all winter! Albireo is the most well known “double star” of all. Jamie Carter Star of the week: Albireo Albireo, Beta Cygni, is surely the most well known “double star” of all, but to see this, the head of Cygnus, “The Swan” in summer skies, does require a small telescope at 30x power. Line it up and you’ll see Albireo A (a golden color) and Albireo B (a less bright blue) contrast each other—it’s a spectacular sight! Sagitta, the arrow
