Click again on the “Astronomical Calendar 2017” tab above. I’m adding. It will be an intermittent process.
You now see, instead of just the list of events, links to two things: that list, and a “Mercury and Venus” section. This is a PDF (portable document format), and I hope it opens for you. As far as I can tell, it opens on tablets and mobile devices as well as computers. I think you will find you can enlarge it and it will retain its sharpness (unlike the JPG screenshot above). You should be able to see charts as delightfully magnified as I do when I am adjusting details on them.
I will be able to respond to your suggestions and complaints. This “Mercury and Venus” section doesn’t as yet look very friendly. It contains as yet only a subset of the illustrations and explanations used in the former books.
I’m touched by the many comments on my Astronomical Calendar’s rising from the dead in electronic form – the Ghost Astronomical Calendar? Especially by Charles Bloomquist’s endeavor each year to understand; I can be thinking of ways to make that easier. Alastair McBeath said: “Wot, no meteor showers?” They, and comets, will be among the phenomena to be added later. Several said they’d be glad to pay something for access; well, I don’t know how to engineer that – yet. Warren Hart asks for “(1) a list of the resources you rely on to publish your data and (2) how you use that data to calculate the resultant information.” Maybe I’ll try to answer those with a future post.
