The night sky of autumn is dominated by the big square of Pegasus and the diffuse band of the milky way crossing all the sky. The summer constellations Cygnus, Lyra, and Aquila vanish in the west and the winter constellations Taurus and Auriga rise in the east already. Ursa Major with its asterism of the Big Dipper creeps low above the northern horizon.
