Astronomy | October 2014 Events

As you plan your month of October, remember to include some events that will occur in the sky. Mars sees the passage of a comet very close to its surface. There is a total lunar eclipse followed two weeks later by a partial solar eclipse. Both eclipses are visible in  North America. NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratory have provided this brief video. Enjoy the shows.

  1. What is this “planning” you speak of? 🙂
    I did notice the moon last night, just before a front rolled through. We’ll have a few nights of good viewing now that the humidity’s getting sent on its way. I’ll have to see what’s on the celestial schedule.

  2. Lots of exciting things going on in October, here’s hoping for clear skies! I’m also very much looking forward to images of Siding Spring at Mars! 🙂
