2011 was another interesting year in the universe with exoplanets, near-Earth asteroids and sun-grazing comets dominating the astronomy news wire but how was it for you? Personally?

Did you:

  • Complete an observing challenge?

  • See your first meteor shower, aurorae or eclipse?

  • Pass a milestone for astronomical observations or other activities?

  • Get some really cool new equipment AND have it work the first time?
