By 10:00pm, one of the gems of the Fall sky will be visible in the northeast. Messier 31, or the Andromeda Galaxy, will be high enough to see. Best viewed in the Fall, Messier 31 is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy. The “W” shape of Cassiopeia’s stars will point you to it, but you will probably need to use binoculars at least in order to view the galaxy.
