2014 Northern Nightscapes Calendar
Over 2013, I shot the night sky more than usual and ended up with enough images to put together a night sky calendar. All of these images are of the night sky near Grand Marais. So, this year, there are two choices of calendars from me. You can get one for home and one for work. My other calendar is the Northern Landscapes Calendar. If you’re just going to buy one, I suggest buying the Northern Landscape Calendar, but if you love the night sky, then this calendar is for you!
For the nightscape calendar, you’ll see images mainly of the Milky Way and northern lights. Within those images, look for meteors and rare red bands of northern lights, which usually aren’t visible to the eye, but because the camera is much more sensitive to the night sky, it can pick up the rare red lights better than our eyes can.
Like my other calendars, I print this on sturdy cardstock in the 11 inches wide by 17 inches long when open format. The center is spiral bound, so that it lays flat against the fridge (I find folded calendars always tend to flip up off the fridge). The colors jump off the page. I added both U.S. and Canadian holidays. At the end of each year, I feel bad recycling mine, because the images look that good.
One of the best parts of the calendar this year is that I was able to reduce the price! Instead of $25, it’s now $21.99.
