In my youth, I looked forward to going to Cornwall in August 1999 to see the bolar eclipse and less so to June 2004 for the Transit of Venus. I miss both events by being resident in New Zealand. However, in Dec 2012 I understand there will be a T of V visible from here. Maybe I'll see that. But I would really love to see a total solar eclipse before I die. Are there any other 'must see' astronomical events? I've already seen total lunars from both north and south.
