In late September, early October Mars and Saturn will be well placed in the evening sky for viewing. Look for the two planets in the WSW after dark. Mars will appear as a semi-bright orangish star low in the southern sky, along the Milky Way. Saturn will be further to the right (or WSW) and appear as a semi-bright yellow star. Just below Saturn, in the heart of the constellation Scorpio, you’ll find the red supergiant star Antares. This star gets its name, which mean “rival of Mars”, because it is so similar in appearance to the red planet. Use the chart below to help you locate the planets.
