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.

(Possible) Taurid Fireball Meteor Shower

Monday, November 12 2018
Keep your fingers crossed! Every now and then the Taurid meteor shower — normally modest — produces spectacular fireballs visible even in bright moonlight. Most recently this happened in 2008. Since the meteor stream is rather spread out in space, Earth takes several weeks to pass through it, causing an extended period of meteor activity, compared with the much smaller periods of activity in other showers. The Taurids are also made up of weightier material, pebbles instead of dust grains. The thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for viewing. Best viewing will be just after midnight from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Taurus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Leonids Meteor Shower

Saturday, November 17 2018
The Leonids is an average shower, producing up to 15 meteors per hour at its peak. This shower is unique in that it has a cyclonic peak about every 33 years where hundreds of meteors per hour can be seen. That last of these occurred in 2001. The Leonids is produced by dust grains left behind by comet Tempel-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1865. The shower runs annually from November 6-30. It peaks this year on the night of the 17th and morning of the 18th. The waxing gibbous moon will set shortly after midnight leaving fairly dark skies for what could be a good early morning show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Leo, but can appear anywhere in the sky

Geminids "King" Meteor Shower

Thursday, December 13 2018
Planning on staying up late (or waking up early) for this one. 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 first quarter moon will set shortly after midnight leaving dark skies for what should be an excellent early morning 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

Winter Solstice

Friday, December 21 2018
06:23 AM PST - 07:23 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

Ursids Meteor Shower

Friday, December 21 2018
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. This year the glare from the full moon will hide all but the brightest meteors. If you are extremely patient, you might still be able to catch a few good ones. 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.
