Episode #072: Precession. Of Course.

After SpaceWeatherNews and a SunProbe update, we read a story about a mystery boom heard at the Serpent Mound in Ohio, and Brenner (returning as a special guest for this special episode) reads a story about the return of the Skull Asteroid of Certain Death this Halloween.
Russ then recounts some personal anecdotes about strange sounds and other "ghostly" phenomena.

We then get to the main topic of the show, which is the Precession of the Equinoxes. Of course. Because 72.

Kyle's Precession Diagrams, showing how the axial wobble shifts the seasons around the orbit of the sun, and thus the zodiacal constellations relative to the sun's position in the sky
