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.

Quadrantids Meteor Shower

Thursday, January 03 2019 - Friday, January 04 2019
The Quadrantids is an above average shower, with up to 40 meteors per hour at its peak. It is thought to be produced by dust grains left behind by an extinct comet known as 2003 EH1, which was discovered in 2003. The shower runs annually from January 1-5. It peaks this year on the night of the 3rd and morning of the 4th. The moon will be a thin crescent and should not interfere with what could be a good show this year. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Well, happy new year 5 days late. This note is from Canton, the fellow who maintains the astronomical events calendar on your phone or computer. I've just added all the meteor showers and grand celestial events for 2019. First up a total lunar eclipse on the 20th of this month! If you see any errors, let me know and I'll fix and update the calendar right away. Thanks for watching the skies with me, - Canton

Total Lunar Eclipse

Sunday, January 20 2019
11:33 AM PST - 02:51 PM PST
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth's dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of North America, South America, the eastern Pacific Ocean, western Atlantic Ocean, extreme western Europe, and extreme western Africa.

Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter

Tuesday, January 22 2019
The two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, will appear to have an ultra-close encounter in the evening sky, coming within within 2.4 degrees of each other in the early morning sky. Look for this impressive sight in the east just before sunrise.

Vernal Equinox (Spring)

Wednesday, March 20 2019
06:58 AM PST - 07:58 AM PST
The date (near March 21 in the northern hemisphere) when night and day are nearly the same length and Sun crosses the celestial equator (i.e., declination 0) moving northward. In the southern hemisphere, the vernal equinox corresponds to the center of the Sun crossing the celestial equator moving southward and occurs on the date of the northern autumnal equinox. The vernal equinox marks the first day of the season of spring. If you live south of the equator, this is your Fall Equinox. http://scienceworld.wolfram.com/astronomy/VernalEquinox.html

Lyrids Meteor Shower

Monday, April 22 2019 - Tuesday, April 23 2019
The Lyrids is an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, which was discovered in 1861. The shower runs annually from April 16-25. It peaks this year on the night of the night of the 22nd and morning of the 23rd. These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. The waning gibbous moon will block out many of the fainter meteors this year, but if you are patient you should still be able to catch a few of the brightest ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower

Monday, May 06 2019 - Tuesday, May 07 2019
The Eta Aquarids is an above average shower, capable of producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. Most of the activity is seen in the Southern Hemisphere. In the Northern Hemisphere, the rate can reach about 30 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet Halley, which has known and observed since ancient times. The shower runs annually from April 19 to May 28. It peaks this year on the night of May 6 and the morning of the May 7. The thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for what should be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky

Jupiter at Opposition

Monday, June 10 2019
The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons. A medium-sized telescope should be able to show you some of the details in Jupiter's cloud bands. A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter's four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet

In the southern hemisphere, this is your winter solstice, marking the shortest day of the year. The declination of the Sun on the (northern) summer solstice is known as the tropic of cancer (23° 27'). http://scienceworld.wolfram.com/astronomy/SummerSolstice.html

Total Solar Eclipse

Tuesday, July 02 2019
12:00 AM PST - 01:00 AM PST
A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely blocks the Sun, revealing the Sun's beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona. The path of totality will only be visible in parts of the southern pacific Ocean, central Chile, and central Argentina. When it makes landfall, it's going to zip by pretty quickly. To experience several minutes of totality, you'll have to be in a boat in the deep south pacific. A partial eclipse will be visible in most parts of the southern Pacific Ocean and western South America.

Saturn at Opposition

Tuesday, July 09 2019
Saturn rules the summer sky, but on this night, the ringed planet truly takes center stage. When it reaches opposition (its closest approach to the Earth), Saturn will be bright and fully illuminated by the Sun. You may even notice that its rings look brighter than usual thanks to a phenomenon known as the Seeliger Effect. Take it all in! Saturn’s rings will be visible in even small aperture telescopes. A medium-sized or larger telescope will allow you to see Saturn's rings and a few of its brightest moons.

Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower

Sunday, July 28 2019
The Delta Aquarids is an average shower that can produce up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by debris left behind by comets Marsden and Kracht. The shower runs annually from July 12 to August 23. It peaks this year on the night of July 28 and morning of July 29. The waning crescent moon will not be too much of a problem this year. The skies should be dark enough for what could be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky

Monday, August 12 2019
The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24. It peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. The nearly full moon will block out most of the fainter meteors this year, but the Perseids are so bright and numerous that it could still be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
