This is an excellent video clip showing:

A “ring of fire” annular solar eclipse across the Americas on Oct. 14 is this month’s top highlight! Plus the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus strike some lovely poses for stargazers and planet watchers to enjoy.

Mission Psyche to asteroid Psyche will be launched this month on a multiyear journey to a metal rich asteroid also named Psyche.

Phases of the Moon are also included.
