Why is Jesus' ascension only mentioned in two of the gospels?

Seems like a rather important, impressionable event to leave out doesn’t it?

Not left out at all! Two eyewitness acounts are still beter than, more confirmation, just like 4 gospels accounts provide more detail, than just 1. Pretty easy to understand, if you’re still confused why not simply do what He requires, confess your sins to God, truly sorry from your heart and simply ask His forgiveness? He will, completely. Then turn from them proving your repentance is real. Trust that Jesus’ death on the cross took the punishment your sins deserved. All who do will receive eternal life and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to do what He commands. Why do you delay?
Read how the Bible says to be right with God, Matthew 4:17; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Romans 2:4-5; Romans 3:23-24; James 2:10; Hebrews 9:27; 1 John 1:8-9; Romans 5:8; Romans 10:9-10; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 3:18; John 3:36; 1 John 5:11-13
So then, each of us will give an account of them self to God. Romans 14:12

Not really.
The Gospel writers each addressed their testimony of the events of Jesus’ life to different audiences. They emphasized different things to different people, and for different reasons.
For instance, Luke, the doctor, emphasizes healing, the virgin birth, and other such things that seem to be “medical miracles.” Matthew writes to his fellow Jews, emphasizing the Jewish prophecies of a Messiah and delineating how Jesus fulfilled those prophecies.
Three of the gospels carry similar stories. One is quite different and includes many additional details.
And that’s exactly what you’d expect from four distinct, different, credible witnesses.
Your implication here is that maybe Jesus didn’t really ascend. But if that’s so, you now have to contrive explanations for the behavior of the disciples, the spread of Christianity, the belief that Jesus DID ascend, and lots of other points, all without any evidence whatsoever. I can’t imagine why you’d want to do that, or even how you’d go about it without hallucinogenic drugs to get things started.
