February starts out slow, but picks up speed as the dawn skies get crowded with some favorite planets, a lunar flyby, an occultation of Mars for some, Venus shining bright all month, and all naked eye planets visible at some point.
January, though probably very cold, will bring us 2 close encounters, 1 meteor showers, and 4 naked-eye planets, along with some very long nights.
December, though probably very cold, will bring us some close encounters, a meteor showers, all 5 naked-eye planets, and some very long nights.

September is very uneventful, with a week of a close encounter lineup of the Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn, and the rather uneventful Autumnal Equinox. However, the nights are getting longer and the days shorter and cooler.
August is yet another month of Jupiter and Saturn, their shining very bright in evening and perseid meteor showers.
July is the month of Jupiter and Saturn this year, with both gracing the skies all night. Check it out at #365DaysOfAstro with @MrWebbPV
June will be warmer, with shorter nights, but still some good events. Watch for Mercury and Mars in a conjunction mid-month, Jupiter up all night long, and some good lunar close encounters.
