Sunday, September 6 finds the Moon extremely close to Mars in the pre-dawn sky.
This planetary pair were even closer back on August 9 but this will still be a really pretty spectacle this month.
If you are up early and can step outside for a look, they will only be a couple of degrees apart.
This means they will appear in the same field of view, if you look through a pair of binoculars.
“And it is still surrounded by a disk of debris – a common feature for star during their planet-forming phase.”
Fomalhaut was the first star to have a planet detected by direct imaging.
This was achieved by NASA’s iconic Hubble Space Telescope.
Fomalhaut can be found lying low in the south, a couple of hours after sunset, to the left of Saturn and Jupiter.
Since it is both bright and low in the sky, it sometime appears to flicker from atmospheric turbulence.
NASA also details the phases of the Moon for September 2020:
September 2: Full Moon
September 10: Third quarter Moon
September 17: New Moon
September 23: First quarter Moon
