The Sky & Telescope 2017 Observing Calendar combines gorgeous astrophotography and special monthly sky scenes that illustrate the positions of the Moon and bright planets. It also highlights important sky events each month, including solar and lunar eclipses, meteor showers, conjunctions, and occultations of bright stars by the Moon.

This attractive and functional wall calendar lists the major celestial events that are visible from North America, and most of the information is approximately correct for the rest of the world as well. Major civil holidays for the U.S. and Canada are included, as well as important dates in the liturgical calendars of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

The calendar features images of galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters, as well as gorgeous photos of the Sun and Earth. The Hubble and other space telescopes produced some of these photos, while others were captured by amateur and professional astrophotographers.
