Venus has a busy month. On the 5th and 6th, it shines just a couple of degrees above Spica. Two nights later, on September 8th, it pairs spectacularly with a thin crescent Moon. They'll be just 1½° apart from North America — even closer south of the equator.
Meanwhile, the Summer Triangle is high above as the evening sky darkens. The beautiful summer milky Way runs through it, but you'll need a dark sky to see this smoky river of starlight.
