ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Australasian night sky in the year 2010. A partial lunar eclipse will start the New Year on January 1, which will be visible from Western Australia and the Indian Ocean and will see only 1% of the Moon pass through the shadow of Earth. The year will also see two Blue Moons, which will occur in January 30 and again in March. The Alpha Centaurid meteor shower will peak on February 8 but will be one of the less spectacular showers as it will only peak at six meteors per hour compared with 120 per hour of the busiest meteor shower.
