When is the Milky Way visible this month?

I heard that the Milky Way will be visible the 18th of September (this Friday), and I want to know more details. Is there a time frame when it is visible? I heard it will be visible after midnight, but then I heard it can be only for 15 minutes at a time. Please help. I want to know what time to go out and look. Thanks
