The Heavens in September

Scientific American

At 9 p.m. on the 15th Cygnus is overhead. Lyra lies to the west of it, then Hercules, Corona, and Bootes, the last near setting. Ophiuchus and Serpeus are in the southwest, and Scorpio is setting there. Sagittarius is west of south. Jupiter is just due south, and Saturn is an hour west of him. Between them, and a little distance above, are the two double stars of Capricornus both worth looking at with a field-glass.

Aquila is above them, marked by the brilliant Altair, east of which is the little group of Delphinus. The south-eastern sky is very dull, the only bright star being the lonely Fomalhaut, in the constellation of the Southern Fish. low down near the horizon.
