Jupiter and Saturn have switched spots from a year ago, an asterism is not the same as an asteroid or even an asterisk, the noctilucent clouds may be on fine display again this evening, and if you invest some money now, you can buy a great telescope to view the giant comet 2014 UN271 when it swings by in 2031.

Or maybe you'll have enough to buy a ticket on space flight to see it in person.
