✳︎ September 2: Full Moon [Corn Moon] • 05:23 UTC
✳︎ September 11: Neptune at Opposition. The blue giant will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year making it the best time to view and photograph all night long. Due to its extreme distance from Earth, it will only appear as a tiny blue dot .
✳︎ September 17: New Moon • 11:00 UTC
✳︎ September 22: September Equinox • 3:30 UTC. The Sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.
