EXCITING SKY EVENTS YOU NEED TO SEE THIS OCTOBER 2020
You may have noticed it already—considerably longer nights (and morning fogs) are now here and we’re experiencing them by the day. This means a little longer time to stay outdoors and marvel at the beauty of the night sky while observing social distancing measures of course!
And it seems like, after a lie-low month of September, this tenth month of 2020 is gunning for a spectacular treat to all the astronomy enthusiasts and sky watchers. The tricks up its sleeve?A major meteor shower and two full Moons that are perfectly bookending October.
But before you dive into the rundown of events, allow us to give you a heads up on when your October nights begin and end.
