Calendars

Our Content Management System (CMS) also supports a robust calendar system.  You can play with the demonstration below to get some idea of how this might work on your site.  You may add event categories including event categories as Google Calendar XML feeds. Each category may be represented by a color of your choosing.  

Got events? We can organize event information on your site in a powerful database system so that your visitors can see this information in the best possible way.  Sometimes just a chronological list is all you need. Other times you need a full calendar. We can display the information any way you want and even offer iCalendar subscriptions for Google Calendar, iCal and even Outlook.

Below is a sample calendar populated only with a couple of Google Calendar feeds to demonstrate how some of the calendar features work. The TGIF event demonstrates both a repeating event as well as the event detail dialog with a graphic.

2018 Astro Calendar Updates Coming Soon!

Tuesday, December 12 2017
Hello, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Canton (canton@gmail.com) will be adding additional 2018 calendar events (meteor showers, etc.) during the last week of 2017. Feel free to email him any suggestions. If you added this ICS calendar feed as a "subscription" instead of a one-time import, then new events should automatically flow into your calendar once they are made available. Moon phases are already in place. Was this calendar helpful to you? Visit http://cantonbecker.com/astronomy-calendar/ to see how you can support this project for free.

Geminids Meteor Shower

Wednesday, December 13 2017
The Geminids is the king of the meteor showers. It is considered by many to be the best shower in the heavens, producing up to 120 multicolored meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by debris left behind by an asteroid known as 3200 Phaethon, which was discovered in 1982. The shower runs annually from December 7-17. It peaks this year on the night of the 13th and morning of the 14th. The waning crescent moon will be no match for the Geminids this year. The skies should still be dark enough for an excellent show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Ursids Meteor Shower

Thursday, December 21 2017
The Ursids is a minor meteor shower producing about 5-10 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet Tuttle, which was first discovered in 1790. The shower runs annually from December 17-25. It peaks this year on the the night of the 21st and morning of the 22nd. The crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for optimal observing. Best viewing will be just after midnight from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Ursa Minor, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Winter Solstice

Thursday, December 21 2017
12:28 AM PST - 02:28 AM PST
The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, respectively, in the sense that the length of time elapsed between sunrise and sunset on this day is a minimum for the year. Of course, daylight saving time means that the first Sunday in April has 23 hours and the last Sunday in October has 25 hours, but these human meddlings with the calendar and do not correspond to the actual number of daylight hours. If you life in the southern hemisphere, this is your Summer Solstice, celebrating the longest day of the year. http://scienceworld.wolfram.com/astronomy/WinterSolstice.html
