Sky Watch October: September was mostly warm and dry, but the Equinox is past, and the mornings are getting cooler...October is here! Let's hope that we get some rain soon!
Evening Skies: Jupiter and Saturn are up most of the night, following the Summer Triangle across the sky.
The Full Moon is the night of the 9th.
The fall/winter stars, Orion and company, are high in the morning and coming up earlier every day....a good sign! Bright Jupiter is setting in the west, and Mars is straight overhead near Taurus and the Pleiades.
Quarry and around town: Lots to watch for and listen to as we move into autumn!
Hawks are battling Jays and Crows, Ducks surf in on early cold fronts, and Screech Owls haunt the twilight as Halloween approaches!
Still, the best sign of fall in Texas is a Monarch Butterfly! They are here right now on their way to Mexico.
I often think of Fr. Swann in October. It's a great time to get outdoors and remember old friends!!
