Its halloween but instead of witches and pumpkins its all radio telescopes and starry sky. What ijn the universe is going on? I use google daily and usually there is a public holiday behind their glammed up main page.

Well, it's pumpkins today.

Usually you can find an explanation by mousing over the logo. I didn't Google yesterday, so I didn't see it. Maybe someone else can provide an explanation.

Patience...
I noticed you posted this shortly after midnight.

Yes; now it's the halloween logo. So; an early salute to the telescope, and then into halloween. Which, by the way is All Hallows Eve. So; forgive them if they don't devote the entire day.

Cute video for the pumpkin carving.

You can find all current the Doodles here http://www.google.com/logos/. Note that some, like e.g. the Halloween Doodle, aren't used worldwide and in some cased are only used in one specific country.
