It's Over ... No More 90

The summer-like temperatures that have been lingering well into October have come to an end with yesterday's high topping off at that value. Normal high for this time of the year is 78 and normal low is 57. We will be right about that value today and tomorrow. The sky will be mostly cloudy for the remainder of the afternoon into sunset.

HOT SUMMER ... Has Finally Ended
As of October 17, there has been 111 days where the temperature in Savannah (airport) has reached 90 or above with seven of those days in October! The normal number of days per year is around 69. That should be it for the year (Finally!!!). The record for the number of 90 days in Savannah was set in 2011 with 121 days.

Backyard Astronomical Picture:
The Andromeda Galaxy ... M 31
This is NOT through any telescope ... Nope, this is from my Canon T7i and a 75-300 mm zoom lens, zoomed to 300mm and attached to the telescope tube and CGEM mount which I used for tracking. This is a 1-hour exposure (30 sub-frames at 120 seconds each). I waited until the moon had set, shortly after 1:00 am to take the picture. The Andromeda Galaxy is our galactic neighbor being about 2.5 million light-years away and consists of about 1 trillion stars, as compared to about 250 billion stars in our own Milky Way Galaxy. You can see this galaxy with the unaided eye in dark skies high in the NE by 9 pm in mid October and high overhead around midnight. (Click on the picture for a larger view).
