Top 10 Astronomical Upcoming Events in 2019

Astronomical events are always mind-bogglingly astounding, and we’ve created an exciting round-up of the 10 most incredible astronomical events scheduled to occur in 2019. These include some of the most majestic celestial occurrences, such as moon stages, planetary movements, meteor showers, solar eclipses and much more.

Here, take a look at the 10 most astounding astronomical events of 2019:

1. Quadrantids Meteor Shower – 3rd and 4th January, 2019

The Quadrantids meteor shower is all set to occur on the 3rd and 4th of January, and it is basically a series of dust grains scattered behind by the now extinct comet, termed as the 2003 EH1 that was identified back in 2003. The shower is expected to begin from the 1st of January and last until the 5th, however, its peak time will begin from the night of the 3rd and last until the 4th morning. Experts recommend everyone to spot the meteor after midnight, from a suitably dark place. The meteor shower will be discharged from Bootes, a constellation, but you can spot in anywhere in the sky.

2. New Moon – 6th January, 2019

The New Moon is the 2nd most incredible astronomical sighting of 2019, and it is all set to take place on the 6th of January. The Moon will be placed on the exact side of the Earth much like the Sun, and unluckily, we will not be able to spot it in the nighttime sky. This occurrence has been estimated to begin at 01:28 UTC, and it provides the best opportunity to identify faint celestial beings because the absence of moonlight eliminates all distractions, allowing you to spot clusters of stars and galaxies.

3. Venus at Greatest Western Elongation – 6th January, 2019

The greatest western elongation of Venus is third on our list of the most incredible astronomical sightings, and it is all set to take place on the 6th of January. It basically marks the occasion when Venus embarks on the greatest eastern elongation, which places it at a 47 degrees distance away from the Sun. Experts believe that the most suitable time to spot Venus at the greatest point up on the horizon is early in the morning. Sunrise is the best time to easily spot the brightness of Venus in the eastern sky.
