2023 will be the third edition of Nights on Earth. I've been encouraged to keep making this calendar by all of the people who tell me they love it! Here are some of their comments from previous years:

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. Your photos are amazing.
My son was just telling me to check and see if you were going to make one for 2023! We both really enjoyed your 2022 calendar, even though we don’t have darkness in the summer where we live. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. Your photos are amazing. Read MoreRead Less

I have the 2022 calendar and I love it!
I have the 2022 calendar and I love it! The pictures are amazing and all of the astronomical info is super helpful. I use it to plan camping trips around the best stargazing times and to plan daily outdoor activities since it gives sunrise / sunset times. I will definitely be ordering a 2023 for myself and a few more for Christmas gifts. Read MoreRead Less

This will be my third, and I use it daily as my astro bible!
Just a quick note of thanks for the work I know you put into your fabulous calendar! This will be my third, and I use it daily as my astro bible! I've only been shooting nightscapes for a couple years, so your work is invaluable to me. Thank you for your commitment to this wonderful and beautiful resource! Read MoreRead Less

This IS the night sky calendar you're looking for!
Holy cow! This is one beautiful piece of form and function! Every page is elegantly laid out with gorgeous imagery and loads of useful night sky condition information! All calendars have moon phases, but this one clearly and conveniently indicates a waning moon with a clever dark sky graphic on the appropriate days, making optimal dark sky viewing sessions easy to plan at a simple glance! Very cool! 😎 Upon closer inspection there is sun & moon, rise & set times for everyday. Meteor showers, conjunctions, and eclipses all there. Even planet AND Milky Way visabilty! Whoa! Creator really went above and beyond with this one! Maybe too much so as it continues FULLY ILLUSTRATED into first quarter of 2022! You really get more than your money's worth on this one. Only reservation I have would be I wish it were a little bigger, maybe 14x14". Text is a bit small and hard to read for us older folk and images really deserve to be that much more showcased. Really hope this calendar series continues because it's my new go to! Great job, Phil Mosby. You are a rock Star! Read MoreRead Less

The pictures in this calendar are works of art
You don't have to be an astronomy fan to enjoy this calendar. Every single photo is amazing. If you do want to know what there is to see in the night sky that can be answered by this calendar too. I highly recommend this for yourself and it also makes a great gift. Read MoreRead Less

Awesome & Perfect gift!
These calendars are beautiful and educational! They have a ton of info about star gazing, but also artistically captures the night sky and Tahoe landscape—seriously, what could be better? I have several pieces from this artist, but having a calendar is like having a new piece of art each month. This year all my family members are getting one for x-mas! Read MoreRead Less

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, CA, USA) with adherence to DST changes.

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, among other factors); 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.
