Nature Happenings - October 2015
Look for ripe wild grapes along old stone walls.
Larch trees, the only northern deciduous conifers, turn brilliant yellow.
Peek inside goldenrod flowers and you may find yellow crab spiders.
Look for miniature white parachutes floating in the air; they are milkweed seeds adrift after the pods have burst open.
Supermoon, the third and last of the year; this full moon appears lighter and brighter than most because it is closer to the earth than usual.
Rare three-planet conjunction. Before sunrise look for a tight triangle in the eastern sky formed by Venus, Mars, and Jupiter.
Halloween—don’t be afraid of harmless daddy longlegs inhabiting your garage or basement.
