Make a note on your calendar right now: October 2.
After all, your calendar should have some fun stuff, too; not just responsibilities and appointments.
That's when the moon will be about a pinky below Mars (if you measure with your hand held out at arm's length).
Sometime this morning, too, the sun crossed the celestial equator - hence today's autumnal equinox.
Lots of sky-watching, clear skies and reasonable temperatures forecast for this week, too.
