SKYCAL Events Calendar

One of my favorite parts of going fishing in the far north is the night sky.

NASA's SKYCAL is a handy site that gives you the opportunity to find out what is happening in the night sky during your next trip north. Simply select: 
  1. Your time zone
  2. The sky events you'd like to observe
  3. The month you will be out watching the night sky
And generate your calendar to take with you when you head north.

Yes I know, they make apps for that. But I've discovered that even if I have connection in the far north, even the glow of a small phone or pad is too much when I'm out to enjoy the solitude of a quiet night at camp.
