My year in review
Its been an interesting year.
Starting with Venus at Inferior Conjunction in January, Saturn Moon Occultation in May, Lunar eclipse and large sunspot in October, now an awesome comet to finish the year and start the next.

Even better has been all the people I have met on the way, thank you all for your awesomeness and lets make 2015 even better.

Come celebrate science (and help us fund and do science) during our 36-hour Hangoutathon. During this event, we invite you to race to map the worlds; Mercury, the Moon, Mars (yes, we’ll have Mars!), and cold distant Vesta. While you do science, we’ll take you on a tour around the world as we follow the terminator to Global Star Party events taking place around the world. We’ll also be joined by a myriad of guests. (Stay tuned for complete listings!)

This is Part 2 of 4
