The "Great American Eclipse" has come and gone, leaving us all with an enhanced appreciation for what goes on in the sky above. Although 2018 offers no total solar eclipse to provide an encore, there's still plenty to see -- including a total lunar eclipse in January (widely observable from the U.S.) and excellent circumstances for the annual Perseid meteor shower in August. This presentation provides a summary of the "must see" celestial events that your viewers will want to know about.
