SHREVEPORT, La. (Ark-La-Tex Weekend) -
Here are some of the highlights for 22nd year of the 21st century.
For a list of full moons for 2022, click here.
Total Lunar Eclipses show on May 16 and November 8. The moon will be setting on November 8 so we may not get to see the full lunar eclipse here in the Ark-La-Tex.
Other meteor showers of 2022 include
January 3-4: Quadrantids Shower. The crescent moon will keep light levels low so this should be a decent show.
April 23: Lyrids Shower. Best to watch this right after midnight.
July 29: Delta Aqaurids Shower: The new moon shines no light so the sky will be very dark.
October 22: Orionids Shower. Best to watch this show after midnight.
December 13-14: Geminids Shower
December 22: Ursids Shower
The changing of the seasons occur on these dates...
March 20: Spring Equinox
June 21: Summer Solstice
September 23: Fall Equinox
December 21: Winter Solstice
No Solar Eclipses for 2022 in North America...
If you want to go see a partial solar eclipse, make plans to head to Chile and South America on April 30, 2022. Or you can travel to Europe and Central Asia for another partial eclipse on October 25.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will be able to see these 2022 astronomical events.
