Skywatching events are some of the easiest and most successful "extras" you can add to a weathercast. Viewer feedback is always positive any time they can easily find a planet, meteor shower, or bright satellite that you've told them about. This presentation will showcase some of the many celestial events coming to the evening skies near you. In particular, you'll get advance information about October's total lunar eclipse and partial solar eclipse and next April's total lunar eclipse — all visible from the U.S.
