2023 Amazing Sky Calendar


Click on one of the images at left to download a free PDF of my 12-month 2023 AmazingSky Calendar. It is a 40-megabyte download handled via DropBox.

A DropBox page opens with the Calendar. Then select Download to get the PDF on your computer. Print the PDF locally if you would like a printed version. 

The Calendar features 14 of my favourite astrophoto images from 2022, and monthly pages that highlight the best sky events for 2023, with an emphasis on naked-eye and photogenic events. 

Thanks! And clear skies in 2023!
