Ring solar eclipse will occur on Friday, January 15, 2010, particularly in Africa, India, and China.

Ring solar eclipse occurs when the Moon was far from the earth so that its visible disk small and can not cover the entire disk of the sun.

Solar disc covered by the disc only the middle month alone, about 92 percent, so that the edge of the sun is not closed. Therefore, the disk of the sun will be seen from the earth like a glowing ring.

January 29, Planet Mars closer to Earth

That day, Planet Mars only 61.7 million miles from Earth. This is the best time for sky watchers to observe Mars with a telescope. Although close, Mars was the maximum observed with the naked eye. Mars will not look for the Moon, Mars to our eyes just like a small star in the sky.

February 16, Jupiter and Venus will be seen together

March 28 to 12 April, Venus and Mercury as a partner

The two planets will be an interesting couple in the sky west and northwest, at dusk. The distance of two planets is only about five degrees. Venus appears to the left and slightly above the image of Mercurius. On April 3, they will look very close, only slightly above 3 degrees.

June 6, two interesting phenomena in the sky

Mars will be located less than one degree north of the blue star Regulus. These conjunctions will be easily visible in the night sky.

The same night, Jupiter, Uranus will be visible simultaneously in the three series of conjunctions. There are only six such conjunctions between the years 1801 and 2200. The last one in 1983 and the next will come the year 2037-2038.

Beginning in August, Trio Planet

Mars passed less than two degrees south of Saturn on 1 August. Then, the image of Venus anya more than 3 degrees to the south nine days later; on August 8.

Jupiter will be in the middle of the night sky, namely, the opposition (magnitude -2.9). In this orbit, Jupiter closer than the average distance.

The end of October, the Earth crossed Comet

Comet Hartley 2 will pass the earth, exactly 11.2 million miles from Earth on October 20, 2010 on, only a week before the comet was passing near the sun in the distance.

This comet can be seen with the naked eye in rural areas, not in the middle of the frenetic city.

December 14, Gemini Meteor showers

Gemini back meteor shower occurs. About 120 meteors per hour will drop and create a beautiful phenomenon.
