Astronomical Calendar: 2013 October


One of the greatest natural effects of Astronomy on the Earth, caused by the revolution of our planet around the Sun combined with the 23.44-degree tilt of the Earth's axis, is the annual multi-color foliage in Autumn. This photograph shows the brilliant Fall foliage in Pennsylvania's Allegheny National Forest. (Image Source: Pittsburgh.about.com )
