October Sky Watch Report with Mr. Lutken
Posted 10/02/2018 12:00PM

 

Sky Watch October 2018:   

The Equinox is past, plenty of rain in September, and we're starting to get a few cooler days......

Evening Skies: 

4 planets to watch:

Venus is brightest but very low in the west at sunset. Soon it will disappear into the sun's glare and return in November as a morning star! Venus is followed by Jupiter and then Saturn in the SW near Sagittarius. Mars is not too far behind to the SE.  

Full Moon is on the 24th

Morning Skies:

The winter stars, Orion and company, are high in the morning, coming up earlier every day.

Quarry: 

  • Plenty of rain in September and it's fall at the Quarry, so there's lots to watch and listen to: 
  • Jays and Crows chasing Hawks
  • Ducks moving in from the north
  • A Screech Owl haunting the twilight
  • Monarch Butterflies are showing up on their way to Mexico!  

 

Missing Father Swann..........head outside, watch, and do some remembering as the season turns! ...........PKL
