Coming Events: A Year of Southern Astronomy for 2014

Coming Events in 2014 

Significant Astronomical events that can be seen with the unaided eye or minimal equipment in 2014 in Australia (and to some degree elsewhere in the Southern Hemisphere, ocultations and eclipses are very region specific).

While I've written of the high profile events of this year for ABC science online (see here) there's a lot more on offer.

Special events are bolded. April has both a lunar eclipse and a partial solar eclipse.
