Deane Morrison is a science writer at the University of Minnesota, where she authors the Minnesota Starwatch column. In this edition of Northern Sky, Deane explains some of the autumn constellations and other objects that we can see this time of year: the Great Square of Pegasus, the Andromeda galaxy, the circlet of Pisces, and the Y-shaped "Water Jar," an asterism in Aquarius. There's also the Harvest Moon, Venus & Regulus in the morning sky, and much more.

Read this month's Starwatch column.
