Jupiter and Saturn are both visible after dark. Look south–you’ll see two fairly bright objects. The one on the right, and the brighter object is Jupiter. The one to the left is Saturn. If you have a binocular, you may be able to see one or more moons of Jupiter. You’ll have to hold them steady–try placing them against a stationary object, like a tree or fence, to hold them steady.

You can use this diagram as a guide. It can be downloaded at skymaps.com. The orientation for the map is set for South, with the middle of the circle representing straight overhead. Turn the map upside down when looking North. The September map is good for October, because it gets dark earlier than the 9:00pm timeframe for the map.
