|Planetary Highlights of 2006 - Ephemerissimo!
To help you with your forecasts in the coming
year, we've organized the tangle of the year's
planetary events to make the major patterns
clear and reveal the most interesting phenomena
of 2006. For openers, you'll find information on
the upcoming Transit of Mercury across the face
of the Sun, the first Major Standstill of the
Moon since 1987, the first Neptune-Pluto
parallel since 1918, and the first Pluto transit
of the Galactic Center since the mid-18th century.
You'll also find the basic tables of the dates,
times and degrees of the important ingresses,
aspects, stations, eclipses and Moon phases,
handily summarized. Plus, to give added depth to
your judgments, you'll find often-overlooked
information, including the year's major
planetary clusters · extremes of declination and
out-of-bounds periods · maximum elongations ·
Supermoons · occultations · dates when planets
enter and exit their retrograde shadow · the
monthly positions, stations and aspects of the
outer-planet midpoints · the dates when there
are many or zero planets in a given element or
mode, and the dates when planets are most and
least dignified. And there's more, too. . .
