    Taurids Meteor Shower on November 5-6. The Taurids is a long-running minor meteor shower producing only about 5-10 meteors per hour. It is unusual in that it consists of two separate streams. The first is produced by dust grains left behind by Asteroid 2004 TG10. The second stream is produced by debris left behind by Comet 2P Encke. The shower runs annually from September 7 to December 10. It peaks this year on the the night of November 5. The thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for viewing. Best viewing will be just after midnight from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Taurus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

    Full Moon on October 24. The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated. When the Moon is Full, it rises at dusk, is directly overhead at midnight, and sets at dawn. This phase occurs at 16:46 UTC. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Hunters Moon because at this time of year the leaves are falling and the game is fat and ready to hunt. This moon has also been known as the Travel Moon and the Blood Moon.

    Uranus at Opposition on October 23. The blue-green planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view Uranus. Due to its distance, it will only appear as a tiny blue-green dot in all but the most powerful telescopes.

    This has always been a favorite: Oh, roar a roar for Nora, Nora Alice in the night. For she has seen Aurora Borealis burning bright. A furor for our Nora! And applaud Aurora seen! Where, throughout the Summer, has Our Borealis been?

    New Moon on October 9. The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. When the Moon is New, it rises at dawn, is directly overhead at midday, and sets at dusk. This phase occurs at 03:47 UTC. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.

    Draconids Meteor Shower on October 8. The Draconids is a minor meteor shower producing only about 10 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner, which was first discovered in 1900. The Draconids is an unusual shower in that the best viewing is in the early evening instead of early morning like most other showers. The shower runs annually from October 6-10 and peaks this year on the the night of the 8th. This will be an excellent year to observe the Draconids because there will be no moonlight to spoil the show. Best viewing will be in the early evening from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Draco, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

    It's Chili time!

    My favorite chili recipe is the one from the Silver Palate cookbook. Long list of ingredients, but worth it, except the black olives. I've never learned to like olives. https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/chili-for-a-crowd-silver-palate-cookbook-50177018

    A little late on this one, because I was away on a camping trip... September Equinox on September 23. The September equinox occurs at 01:54 UTC. The Sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.
