I am dreading the winter already.
The nights drawing in means that the stars and planets are visible much earlier. This month Jupiter can be seen near Aldebaran (the eye
of Taurus) in the late evening.
If you get up early, Venus rises four hours before the sun, and is very bright this month.
Two nights ago we had a perfectly clear sky where I live and it was great to sit out (still not too cold) and try to identify the constellations, with the majestic sweep of the Milky Way directly overhead.
Look on the bright side. No damn mosquitos or flies, no more grass to cut, and the universe to admire.
