We say farewell to the summer Milky Way; Scorpius is all but lost and Sagittarius is dipping into the horizon. Don't worry, they will return in March. Tonight we will round up the best summer showpieces and get a final look some of the finest globular cluster and planetary nebulae in the sky. The region around Hercules, Lyra, Cygnus and Vulpecula is still fairly high above the horizon so we can catch a last look at the Great Hercules Cluster (M13), the Ring Nebula (M57), globular cluster M56, open cluster NGC 6819, the Veil Nebula (NGC 6992), the Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC 6543), the Dumbbell Nebula (M27), open cluster NGC 6940 and globular cluster M71. Later in the evening we'll showcase the Andromeda Galaxy and the Double Cluster in Perseus. Neptune and Uranus are still well placed for viewing and for those who stay late, the winter Milky Way and Jupiter will rise around midnight.
