- June 2/1 (because the Int'l Date Line is crossed): Partial solar eclipse in the far North, with the greatest magnitude (mag. 0.6) in Russia.
- June 14: Saturn just 1/4° from bright star Porrima; the two are forming a nice 'double star' already now!
- June 15/16: Total eclipse of the Moon, best seen from E & S Africa and W Asia (websites from RSA, Pakistan and India) but also a little bit at the end from Central Europe.
- June 28: Dwarf planet Pluto in opposition at 14th mag. in 31 AU distance.
- July 1: Partial solar eclipse just off Antarctica - and nowhere else. D'uh!
In other news unusual views of the Moon: in polarized light, used as a diffracting edge, in extreme libration and with impacts by 3 Eta Aquarids and one Quadrantid (some background on this kind of observation here and here). • Images of poor comet Elenin of May 24 and May 16 and what the future may bring (and what not). There are also a new comet C/2011 J3 (LINEAR) (more) - and pre-discovery observations (and non-observations) of C/2010 A2 (LINEAR). • Some bizarre (non-)impact stories: another megacryometeor mystery and weird circumstances of the Dryas (more) and Chiemgau non-impacts.
• From the Sun May prominences (from every day from May 19 ... 26), the May 25 full Sun in H-Alpha and a May 9/10 CME movie, aurora over Tasmania on May 28, plus preventing space storm damage on Earth - and a weird scene from an art exhibition (headline - not connected to the pic - NSFW) ... • A star's proper motion in 110 years documented. • The first NLC sightings of the year are in; see also here. • Some post-processing of ESO movies showing Paranal rotating in a fixed Universe. • A rare timelapse movie of geostationary (or rather not so stationary!) satellites. • An Endeavour water dump (more). • And the ISS & Endeavour in front of the Sun with veeery high and not quite so high resolution (one more) - this low-res movie shows how fleeting these 'transits' are.
