Strange Universe 9/13/20

Sep 13, 2020

Look straight up at 8 o’clock tonight, or the first clear night. You will see Vega, the brightest star that is almost directly overhead at midnorthern latitudes on midsummer nights. It's not as brilliant as Jupiter, lowish in the south these nights, but Vega at 8 p.m. is just as unmistakable. The “standard candle” is shining brightly, almost directly right above us.
