The moon is at first quarter and the light from it has washed out the Milky Way - at least for another 10 days or so. I hope to see the centre of the Milky Way it in all of it's glory before I return to the UK.
Altair, the brightest star in Aquila, is overhead at the start of the evening. Deneb and Vega are bright in the north. Those stars mark the Summer Triangle and it's upside down in the sky to how I usually see it.
I'd really like to see Alpha Centauri while I'm here (Rigil Kentaurus on the chart) but it's very low in the southwest. I'll need to find a clear horizon just after sunset to see it.
Scorpius is certainly the most recognisable constellation for me since I arrived. Orange Antares catches my eye every time I look up. The stars in the "stinger" (Shaula and Lesath) are particularly striking. With the binoculars I spotted a nice optical double (mu Scorpii).
As the evening goes on another bright star appears in the southeastern sky - Achernar, the brightest star in Eridanus, the River.
I'd also very much like to see the star Canopus before I leave. It's the second brightest star in the sky after Sirius. In fact, there's a brilliant alignment in the early morning hours with Jupiter-Sirius-Canopus that I'd like to see before I leave.
