if you want to catch a glimpes of mars. just wait until it gets dark it should be just SSW.from september the 1st. the magnitude. will be -0.8. then starts to fade by september the 30th to a magnitude of -0.4.

mercury can be seen 30 mins after sunset, it will be at its greatest elongation on september the 18th.

uranus is in capricornus which the moon passes 3' south of uranus.

saturn is stationary at 11pm 26th.

and the crater plinius makes a great target for lunar observers.
