Tonight's Sky for August 20: Northern Cross at Zenith at Midnight


Don't have a watch? Well, no problem, at least at midnight as Cygnus, also known as the Northern Cross, is just about at zenith come midnight. To see it, just go out, look straight up, and try and make out the cross-shaped pattern of stars. Hint: bright Deneb, alpha Cygnus, is the top of the cross.
