Nights on Earth is a 13-month calendar and stargazer's guide to the year 2021, 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 13 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!

It is currently available for Pre-Order at the bottom of this page.
Each month includes a wealth of astronomical information, including:
I made this calendar for myself (but you're going to love it too!)
As an astro landscape photographer, this is the calendar that I have often longed for over the years of planning nighttime photo shoots, but it's also perfect for anyone who has even a passing interest in the night sky. I hope you'll find it to be one of the most beautiful as well as useful and informative wall calendars you've ever owned!

If you'd like to support this project now, please Pre-Order; you'll be helping directly with the production cost. As thanks, you'll get 10-25% off, free shipping, and a small surprise matted print with each order placed by June 1st. You'll also be entered to win 1 of 5 Canvas Prints featuring photos from the calendar! Winners will be notified June 2nd; good luck! Thank you again for checking out Nights on Earth 2021.

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 roughy 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.
