View Full Version : Best website for astro events?

does anyone have a favorite website for the dates and times of astronomy events (including planets, asteroids, launches)?

I've seen fairly detailed web sites in the past, but cannot find or remember where.

For launches, I'm rather partial to Spaceflight Now -- they seem to have the most reliable, regularly-updated launch schedule (http://www.spaceflightnow.com/tracking/index.html), with notes where necessary.

For astro events, you might enjoy the Sky Report (http://cfa-www.harvard.edu/ep/starreport.html) page from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Sea & Sky (http://www.seasky.org/astronomy/astronomy_calendar_2006.html) also has a decent events calendar.

The freshly-redesigned Sky & Telescope (SkyTonight.com) page features a nicely updated, interactive alamanac (http://skytonight.com/observing/objects/javascript/3305541.html).

Edited to add, for good measure: Kronk's Meteor Observing Calendar (http://comets.amsmeteors.org/meteors/calendar.html).
