2018, September 18: Start Looking for Vesta


  • September 18: With binoculars begin looking for Vesta (4 Vesta, m = 6.4), moving eastward among the stars of Sagittarius.  In a week it passes south of Saturn. Tonight, the minor planet is 1.3° to the lower right of 9 Sagittarii (9 Sag, m = 5.9), a star in the central area of the Lagoon Nebula (M8, NGC 6523).
