Celestial Event Galleries

An asteroid flyby or a comet? A meteor shower that wasn’t clouded out? An eclipse or a super rare conjunction? If I can capture it, then I will get it! Some events I captured via live stream video instead of photography.

On this page, the galleries featured here are dedicated towards a certain celestial event that made headlines, or at least deserved more attention than they got! Sorry, no Supermoons!
