12 Must-See Skywatching Events in 2012



Just as looking at the sea is calming and entices the imagination, so too does watching the skies. From ancient times to modern day - from astronomy, to astrology to mythology, the heavens speak to us about the mysteries of life that will one day explain who we are, where we came from, and what is next.

Each year the sky brings us different spectacular displays, many of which affect life on planet Earth. There are generally 4 eclipses that not only stir the soul, but bring in the new as well as bring events things full circle. A new moon eclipse will come full circle 6 months later with a full moon eclipse in the same sign.

So get your telescopes ready as we enter 2012 and your plot your course in space. With each event, you may want to create a story, video, or whatever comes to mind.

Who knows ... maybe this will be the year it changes forever ... when UFOs are finally seen by all and we find out who we are.

The sun will definitely speak this year.

As the year 2011 came to a close, some wondered what is looming sky-wise for 2012? What celestial events might we look forward to seeing? I've selected what I consider to be the top 12 "skylights" for this coming year, and list them here in chronological order. Not all these events will be visible from any one locality ... for the eclipses, for instance, you'll probably have to do some traveling ... but many can be observed from the comfort of your backyard.
