For those of you in Australia
For those of you in Australia...
I've never seen one before... not even a partial eclipse. The only two astronomical events I've ever seen which were rare was Halley's comet (1986 flop) and the Hale-Bopp comet (1997 wow). I've also seen meteor showers, some better than others, but I didn't even get to see the Shoemaker-Levy9 one hit the planet Jupiter because I didn't have a telescope.
So what other big astronomical events have you seen?
