Must See Stargazing

Aug. 10: Biggest Full Moon of 2014: On Aug. 10, the moon turns full at 2:09 p.m. EDT, and just nine minutes earlier it will arrive at its closest point to the Earth in 2014 at a distance of 221,765 miles, making this a so-called “supermoon.”

Aug. 18: A Brilliant Double Planet: An hour before sunrise, low in the northeast sky, the two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, will be strikingly close together. The two worlds will be separated by less than two-thirds of the apparent width of the moon in our sky, making for a very eye-catching sight.

Oct. 8: Another Total Lunar Eclipse: Across central and eastern North America, the moon will set while still completely immersed in Earth’s shadow. The moon will pass to the north of the center of the shadow, with totality lasting one hour. As a consequence, we might expect a relatively bright eclipse, possibly featuring a coppery red hue across the lower part of the moon, contrasted by a brighter upper rim.

Oct. 19: Near Collision of a Comet with Mars: All eyes will be on the Red Planet in October as Comet C/2013 A1(Siding Spring) will pass extremely close to Mars. The comet will come so close, in fact, that its may create a stupendous shower of meteors as seen from the Martian surface.

Oct. 23: A Partial Eclipse of the Sun: The moon’s penumbral shadow will fall over much of North America as well as extreme eastern Siberia, producing a partial solar eclipse. In the east, the moon will begin its encroachment onto the sun’s disk as it sets.

Dec. 13: The Geminid Meteor Shower: The Geminids, regarded by many observers as the best of the annual meteor showers, has the misfortune of occurring during the time of a last-quarter moon, which will pretty much squelch all but the brightest meteors, but still look for those shooting stars to make a wish on!

There is no better place to view the stars than Beacon Hill!
