Things to spot in the night sky over Merseyside during September

Neptune_Full

This month there is plenty to spot in the night skies over the UK, if it’s a clear night.

Uranus

Uranus can be seen for more than 9 hours during the late night/early morning and until sunrise.

The blue planet will be at its highest point in the sky around 3am.

Neptune

Neptune is roughly in the opposite direction of the Sun in the sky, and is, therefore, visible most of the night.

This is the best time of the year to view the planet and will be at its highest point in the sky around 1am.

International Space Station
