Weather has been steadily cooling but still very pleasant, pleasant enough to continuing biking on my local trails. I’ve continued bicycling through the Summer and into the Fall, and thought these would be good point-in-time shots. As you can see, many of the trees are still green. This will likely change rapidly even over the next week. Normally by early November, most trees will have lost their leaves or be in their advanced stages of Fall color.
On the astronomy front, tomorrow is Mars opposition 2020. The forecast is cruel right now, with clouds scheduled to roll in early evening Tuesday. As I write this on Monday, the skies are overcast with rain in the afternoon, followed by clearing early evening. I may try to sneak in opposition eve viewing and photos late tonight.
