Astro for the month ahead

We're closing September of the Harvest Moon season with that time, as October fast approaches. October is a month of amazing astronomical events, especially on clear nights. The full moon of October is referred to as the Hunter's Moon. We'll be seeing the full moon on the 24th October. A link to the different phases are here: Moon Phase Calender
It's also when to expect some awesome meteor showers. This will be on the 8th, 21st and the 22nd October 2018. The meteor shower on the 8th is the Draconids or Giaconids, while the 21st and 22nd meteor showers are the Orionids. We'll anticipate more meteor showers following October as well but there is much excitement for the coming star shows.
Howls ^^
