September 2014 in space and skywatching

It's been way too long since I posted any space updates, the last one being Sleeping in space, which fits into this month's Heal theme.  Time to start making up for that with these two previews of the month's space and skywatching events that I originally posted in Overnight News Digest: Science Saturday (Blair Mountain and Labor Day) on Daily Kos.

First, JPL tells its YouTube subscribers What's Up for September 2014.

View the red star Antares near the red planet Mars, plus the Zodiacal Light that points towards Jupiter in the morning sky.
Next, Hubble Space Telescope describes Tonights Sky: September 2014.

Backyard stargazers get a monthly guide to the northern hemisphere's skywatching events with "Tonight's Sky." In September, Mars and Saturn are visible low in the evening sky and the star cluster M2 in Aquarius is featured.
That felt good.  Expect more of these alternating with entries about health and current events.
