Nights on Earth is a 16-month calendar (+8 month mini-calendar through Dec 2022!) and stargazer's guide to the night sky, from astro-landscape photographer Phil Mosby. As much an Almanac as it is a traditional wall calendar, Nights on Earth contains a plethora of interesting space and astronomy-related facts and data points accompanied by 17 awe-inspiring Lake Tahoe Nightscape photos from Mosby's collection. Meticulously researched and gorgeously printed on heavy paper stock, Nights on Earth is a unique, interesting, and functional gift for any space, science, nature, or photography lover!

About the Information in this Calendar

This calendar focuses on astronomical events that can be viewed from the Northern Hemisphere. The times & dates of astronomical events in this calendar are estimates, based off of the location of 39.0968° N, 120.0324° W (Lake Tahoe) and all times given are in Pacific Time (GMT-8) with adherence to DST changes (GMT-7 Mar 14 - Nov 7, 2021).

In most parts of the Northern Hemisphere, the local timing of most events will be roughly correct (depending how far North or South of 39.0968° N you are); however, it is recommended to use this calendar only as a general guide of when in the month/year astronomical events are taking place, and then use an astronomical phone app, an ephemeris, or one of the websites from the credits below, to further research the events and plan your viewing.
