I love it when December rolls around every year because I know it’s time to order the Year In Space Calendars! This is our most-recommended holiday gift every year and for 2017, these calendars – whether it’s the gigantic wall calendar or the spiral-bound desk calendar — are full of amazing color images, daily space facts, and historical references. These calendars even show you where you can look in the sky for all the best astronomical sights.

These calendars are the perfect gift every space enthusiast will enjoy all year.

The gorgeous wall calendar has over 120 crisp color images and is larger, more lavishly illustrated, and packed with more information than any other space-themed wall calendar. It’s a huge 16? x 22? when hanging up.

The Year In Space calendars take you on a year-long guided tour of the Universe, providing in-depth info on human space flight, planetary exploration, and deep sky wonders. You’ll even see Universe Today featured in these calendars!

The Year in Space calendars normally sell for $19.95, but Universe Today readers can buy the calendar for only $14.95 or less (using the “Internet” discount), with additional discounts that appear during checkout if you buy more than 1 copy at a time. Check out all the details here.

The 136-Page Desk Calendar is available at a similar discounts. The desk calendar also includes a Monthly Sky Summary, which is a handy month-by-month list of what’s visible in the night sky, such as conjunctions, meteor showers, eclipses, planet visibility, and more. Plus there’s information on planetary exploration, including a comprehensive look at what to expect from the many planetary missions taking place in the year ahead.
