You can still see Mars close to Jupiter by getting up tomorrow morning.
And (I wish of course I could have timed this a day earlier, but…) you can find the second instar of Astronomical Calendar 2018 by clicking on the tab above.
I have improved the appearance and added some more kinds of event – so far, conjunctions of the planets with each other and with the prominent stars and clusters, and events of the first four asteroids. More later.
And, to test whether I can set pictures in, I’ve done so – using tomorrow morning’s picture. I think you will find you can see it more sharply in the PDF than in the blog.
Some have asked whether the online Astronomical Calendar will develop into a printed book. No. No more of that prodigious annual struggle and expense.
Instead, I hope to make a group of smaller books, with charts and more, for the astronomical years ahead. The first, whose title may be A Longer View: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, is almost ready.
