I thought I would start a list here (hopefully it turns into a sticky) where people can post up coming astronomical and celestial events so we dont miss them! So many times I have missed a magnificent display of Aurora, particularly bright moon or other sights that I would have liked to see.

Ill start with a contribution courtesy of edge2edge
Geomagnetic storm expected!

I check Spaceweather.com, then NOAA current warnings, and finally http://www.aurorawatch​.ca/ (external link) which provides current geomagnetic activity around Edomonton, AB. Usually a great barometer for auroras here! With NOAA watch for sudden impulse warnings which are usually a sign for the potential of geomagnetic activity, but not always a guarantee of auroras at latitude.

76% chance of seeing the Aurora in the Edmonton area tonight! I hope people up at Edmonton are having better weather than us in Canmore.

Alltough not related to Photography, Red Bull Stratos is a mission to the edge of space that will try to surpass human limits that have existed for more than 50 years. Supported by a team of experts, Felix Baumgartner will undertake a stratospheric balloon flight to more than 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters and make a record-breaking freefall jump in the attempt to become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall (an estimated 690 miles / 1,110 kilometers per hour), while delivering valuable data for medical and scientific advancement.

This is happening right now!

On October 20-21 we will be able to watch the Orionid meteor shower at an estimated rate of 20 meteors per hour. More info here http://earthsky.org …e-next-meteor-shower-2012 (external link)

Minor CME impact, so there is a slight chance of auroras if you have clear sky and live in areas in higher latitudes.
