A deeply golden, even slightly orange handful of fire rises in the dusk each day and spends the entire night crossing low across the south sky. That imposing mass of celestial flame and fame is none other than the most fascinating of all Earth’s fellow worlds, the planet Mars — making its closest approach to Earth in 15 years just two weeks from now.

What a rich outpouring — in fact, a veritable cornucopia — of astronomical sights we have these next two weeks. We have Jupiter and Mercury close together at several dawns, while Venus is approaching Saturn and the star Antares at nightfalls. We have a Virginia rocket launch dramatically visible from South Jersey (the rocket exploded spectacularly last time). We have the moon passing in front of night’s brightest star it can ever hide, plus a few others. And we have a free local Skywatch at which you can see Venus, Saturn, Mars and more through some of New Jersey’s best telescopes.

Would you like to see three famous bright planets - Jupiter, Mars and Saturn - lined up fairly high in the sky each evening? How about a side order of two more bright planets, though very low in the west right after sunset? How would you like to witness the International Space Station pass very near fiery Mars? Would you also like to see stars in Taurus the Bull wink out of view behind the bright edge of a lovely crescent moon, then flash back into sight from the moon's dark side?

Our main topic today is the fascinating trek of Mars through the bright constellation Scorpius the Scorpion these next two weeks. But now that we reach the true beginning of autumn - the autumn equinox at 10:29 p.m. on Sept. 22 - it's also time to take a preview of the most amazing astronomy sights and events of the fall. In particular we have to get ready for October's eclipses - one of the moon and one of the sun.
