Here’s the September 17 Earth Matters, by regular contributor David Spector. As we look forward to the annual display of fall colors, another autumnal color change is happening if we look down. David draws our attention to asters and their intriguing habit of changing the color of their flowers as the season progresses. Why this happens is still not fully understood, but he gives us some hints.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait a few days and go to the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, where you’ll find the article on the home page. You’ll also find some additional notes from the author at the end of that version.
