While you wait seven years for America’s next total solar eclipse, check out the New York Times calendar of astronomical events. Subscribe and never miss another meteor shower, rocket launch, or solstice.

The next listed event is a fun one: On September 15, the Cassini spacecraft (rendered above) will crash into Saturn, 20 years after its launch.

One excellent use of this calendar is to tweet at Neil deGrasse Tyson a few days ahead of each event, to give him a heads up. (How else will he know?) Be helpful by googling something like “space cool fun” and pasting the first image you find into your tweet. He’ll appreciate it. Try it now!
