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.
