The Sky at Night

Last night while walking home from the pub, my gaze wandered skyward. What greeted me was a gorgeous view of a nearly full moon with Jupiter just below, not to mention Uranus! A bit of research tonight has revealed that it is a Harvest Moon- and that tomorrow night is the Autumn Equinox. It also turns out that Jupiter is closer to now than it has been since 1963, and it won't be this close again until 2022! I urge you all to go outside and look up to the heavens and ponder our place in the universe- it really is worth it.
I won't go into anymore detail here but for more information on the autumnal Equinox and other astronomical features then the EarthSky website is particularly helpful.
Live Long and Prosper

I'm bookmarking that earthsky website - very interesting. Found an interesting page on there about the Harvest Moon
