The highlights of 2019 for stargazers include a total lunar eclipse some are calling a “Super Blood Wolf Moon” and a transit of Mercury. And there are plenty of sights to spot in the heavens in between.
The Leonid meteor shower for 2017 will be peaking on the night of Friday, November 17. Probably more accurate to say peaking on the morning of Saturday, November 18. The meteors are expected to be more numerous between midnight and morning twilight.
Unique celestial events in 2014 include two full lunar eclipses visible from Maryland and a partial solar eclipse that will begin just before sunset one October afternoon. A new meteor shower could be a bonus.
