What astronomical events are you looking forward to this year?
There are two main ones for me.
The Mars Opposition because it will take months and months to enjoy as it gets larger in the night sky. Mars will be the focus in the sky onces is visible. Its fun to watch these well before they peek in brightness.
Also along the same lines, I'm interested in watching the Mars Rover launch into space for its 2021 landing.
The other is Coment C/2017 T2 (PANSTARRS) reaching perihelion in early May 2020. Like Mars, I'm already watching it when its clear, watching it get closer.
Other then that, I look forward to watching the Lunar X and Lunar Y events every few months and any transits I can catch on Jupiters moons crossing the surface.
What others could be out there this year?
