I am sure you already know all about the Solar Eclipse coming up on the 21st, and chances are you will be watching and are quite excited. Since it has been such a long time since we have seen a total solar eclipse from the west coast to the east coast people are becoming increasingly impatient.
That being said there are many other things going on within the next 40 days. While the eclipse itself is going to be amazing it is not all we should be focusing on. Below you will find a list of the 16 most critical events you need to pay attention to over the course of the next 40 days.
On this day you will be able to see Jupiter!
For the third time in August you will be able to see another planet alongside the moon. This time it will be Saturn, and be sure to watch out for the Cassini spacecraft diving into Jupiter.

There is always so much going on in the world that we let the important things slip through the cracks. Pay attention to what is happening on our planet, don’t let the world get to you! While some of these things may seem like nothing, how many of them have you heard about recently? I for one have heard of nothing but the eclipse for quite some time now, and I think it is high time we start talking about other things!
