The Sky This Week For August 26 to September 4

Saturn, Antares, and Mars meet in the sky early in the week, but there's also a small meteor shower and a new moon to look forward to.

SKY THIS MONTH

While Mars and Saturn dominate the evening sky, Venus and Jupiter pass near each other late in the month. Still, August’s top event should be a great display of Perseid meteors on the 12th.
