What makes the days shorter, the nights longer, and the air cooler? What heavenly bodies and celestial events can we observe for the remainder of the year? What is an annular solar eclipse, what can we expect to see during the one that will occur on October 14, 2023, and how can we safely view it? In this free virtual (Zoom) event, we will discuss the seasons, such special events as meteor showers, as well as the planets and constellations that will be visible.
