See the Summer Triangle asterism after dusk Wednedsay (Aug. 31)

See summer’s favorite asterism rise above the eastern horizon just after dusk tonight (Aug. 31). 

The Summer Triangle asterism (a general term for a grouping of stars) consists of three bright, white stars from three separate constellations: Deneb in the constellation Cygnus the Swan, Vega in the constellation Lyra the Harp, and Altair in the constellation Aquila the Eagle. When you connect these three stars in the night sky they form a triangle that is visible high overhead all night.
