2020 Vision- The Year Ahead
2020 Astronomical Events & Alignments
The celestial year starts off strong, on the heels of very strong powerful end of 2019 - most significantly the alignments of the planets, sun, earth and moon. Some events and alignments to focus on for the beginning of 2020 are:
JANUARY 4/5 - EARTH PERIHELION - Earth at closest point to the SUN
JANUARY 10 - FULL MOON
The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated. This phase occurs at 19:23 UTC (14:23 EST or 2:23 pm Eastern). This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Wolf Moon because this was the time of year when hungry wolf packs howled outside their camps. This moon has also been know as the Old Moon and the Moon After Yule.
JANUARY 10 - Penumbral LUNAR ECLIPSE
A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the Earth's partial shadow, or penumbra. During this type of eclipse the Moon will darken slightly but not completely. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of Europe, Africa, Asia, the Indian Ocean, and Western Australia. (NASA Map and Eclipse Information)
JANUARY 12 - Pluto Saturn Conjunction Alignment
JANUARY 13 - Sun Saturn Conjunction Transit Alignment
JANUARY 24 - NEW MOON
The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This phase occurs at 21:44 UTC (16:44 EST or 4:44 pm Eastern). This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.
JANUARY 27 - VENUS WITH NEPTUNE AND THE MOON
The moon appears near the star Phi Aquarii and the planet Neptune. A small telescope or binocular is needed to see Neptune that appears as a bluish “star.”
FEBRUARY 9 - FULL MOON, SUPERMOON
The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated. This phase occurs at 07:34 UTC (2:34 EST or 2:34 am Eastern). This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Snow Moon because the heaviest snows usually fell during this time of the year. Since hunting is difficult, this moon has also been known by some tribes as the Full Hunger Moon, since the harsh weather made hunting difficult. This is also the first of four supermoons for 2020. The Moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual.
FEBRUARY 23 - NEW MOON
The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This phase occurs at 15:33 UTC (10:33 EST or 10:33 am Eastern) This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.
FEBRUARY 26 & 27 - CRESCENT MOON AND VENUS
By the end of February, the crescent moon is back in the evening sky. On February 26, at the end of twilight, the moon 14° up in the west, is 10° to the lower left of Venus. On the next evening, February 27, at the end of evening twilight, Venus, 25° up in the west, is nearly 7° to the right of the waxing crescent moon.
MARCH 7 - VENUS PASSES URANUS
Venus passes Uranus. Use a binocular to locate the dimmer planet.
Venus closes in on the planet Uranus. On March 7, Venus is 2.2° to the right of Uranus. The planet is brighter than Neptune, which Venus passed in January. In a dark sky, Uranus is visible in a dark sky to those with good eyesight. Use a binocular to see it easier.
MARCH 8 - SUN CONJUNCTS NEPTUNE
The Sun and Neptune move slowly in respect to each other, this alignment has been building for a while now. It culminates today. Neptune and Sun together increase your capacity for telepathic communication. Behind which veils do you wish to see? In which dimension do you chose to view?
MARCH 9 - FULL MOON, SUPERMOON
The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated. This phase occurs at 17:48 UTC (12:48 EST or 12:48 pm Eastern). This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Worm Moon because this was the time of year when the ground would begin to soften and the earthworms would reappear. This moon has also been known as the Full Crow Moon, the Full Crust Moon, the Full Sap Moon, and the Lenten Moon. This is also the second of four supermoons for 2020. The Moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual.
MARCH 19/20 - MARCH EQUINOX
The March equinox occurs at 03:50 UTC (11:50 EST March 19 or 11:50 pm Eastern). The Sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.
MARCH 24 - VENUS HIGHEST POINT ABOVE HORIZON IN SKY
The planet Venus reaches greatest eastern elongation of 46.1 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Venus since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the evening sky. Look for the bright planet in the western sky after sunset.
MARCH 30 - APRIL 7 Venus in Taurus: A Spectacular Pleiades Conjunction
In late March, Venus moves into Taurus, heading for a conjunction with the Pleiades. During April, Venus moves between the Pleiades and Hyades and toward Elnath (Beta Tauri, m = 1.6), the Bull’s northern horn. As Venus approaches the star, it begins a rapid descent toward the western horizon, toward its early June inferior conjunction.
On March 30, Venus moves into Taurus, 3.6° to the lower right of Alcyone, the brightest star in the Pleiades star cluster. The next evening, March 31, at the end of evening twilight, Venus, over 25° up in the west, is 2.7° to the lower right of Alcyone.
As April opens Venus is in the west near the Pleiades. On April 3, one hour after sunset, Venus, 30° up in the west, is 0.3° to the lower left of Alcyone. This is the closest Venus gets to the Pleiades on this evening appearance.
On the next evening, April 4, on this evening and for the next few evenings Venus and Sirius are at nearly the same altitude in the west at about 9 p.m. CDT in Chicago, a few minutes after the end of evening twilight (about 105 minutes after sunset). While Venus and Sirius are too far apart for technical comparisons of their brightness difference, the brightest star and the brightest planet are the same altitude in the western sky. Sirius, Orion’s belt, Aldebaran, and Venus are nearly in a line across the western horizon. The Venus – Alcyone gap, 0.9°. Gaps as Venus moves eastward along the ecliptic and away from the Pleiades: April 5, 1.8°; April 6, 2.7°; April 7, 3.5°; April 8, 4.6°; April 9, 5.2°.
APRIL 3 - VENUS CENTERED WITHIN PLEIADES
Venus nestles in close to the Seven Sisters, The Pleiades.
This is a BIG DIAMOND CODE ILLUMINATION DAY
