Summer comes to an end this month, but the great news for stargazing in September is that there’s still plenty of great summer constellations and, with the early sunsets, you can get an earlier start in the evening.

The full moon this month is on Sept. 14 and because of its proximity to the autumnal equinox, it’s officially the harvest moon for 2019.
