I hope your week is filled with many treats.

'Spooky' Halloween Asteroid May Actually Be a Comet   Live Science - October 24, 2015
The big asteroid that will zoom past Earth on Halloween may actually be a comet, NASA researchers say. The roughly 1,300-foot-wide (400 meters) asteroid 2015 TB145, which some astronomers have dubbed "Spooky," will cruise within 300,000 miles (480,000 kilometers) of Earth on Halloween (Oct. 31) - just 1.3 times the average distance between our planet and the moon. Though 2015 TB145 poses no threat on this pass, the flyby will mark the closest encounter with such a big space rock until August 2027, when the 2,600-foot-wide (800 m) 1999 AN10 comes within 1 Earth-moon distance (about 238,000 miles, or 385,000 km), NASA officials said.

Happy #Arachtober! Spiders Take Over the Web for Halloween   Live Science - October 22, 2015
Photographers and researchers from around the world are teaming up to share spectacular (and sometimes skin-crawling) photos of one of Halloween's most popular mascots: spiders. But even if they're not your favorite animals, spiders do capture the spirit of the season, and these eight-legged beauties happen to be very cooperative models, according to the folks who started Arachtober, the group devoted to sharing spider-themed photos on social media. Arachtober started in 2007 as a friendly exchange between two Flickr-using macrophotographers, Joseph Connors IV and Ashley Bradford. (Macrophotography is the art of capturing magnified images on film.) Both Connors and Bradford happened to have a lot of spider pictures saved up, and they figured October, the month of Halloween, would be a good time to share the photos with their followers on Flickr.

The NY Mets vs Kansas City Royals

My Grandson Michael was invited by the head baseball coach at Amherst College in Mass., to spend this weekend - Homecoming Weekend. They are building a new baseball field which will be ready when he starts college next fall. I can't wait to hear more about his adventures there. His mom, my daughter Zsia, celebrates her birthday Tuesday October 27.
