The Moon Almanac 2024

Published: October 2023. Print and ebook.

36 pages. Full color contents. 8"x6".

For hundreds of years, American publishers have produced annual almanacs with the dates and times of su n rise and sun set, moon rise and moon set, and other specifics related to daily and seasonal cycles of nature. First launched in 2011, we present an almanac devoted solely to the cycles of the Moon: The Moon Almanac. In 36 pages, exact times of moon rise, moon set, full and new moons, and other Moon specifics are presented in an easy-to-use digital format. Unlike other annual publications, The Moon Almanac provides these times for each time zone in the United States and with some Moon cycles, exact times for major cities. Also included are the points on the horizon where each full moon of the year can be seen rising -- specified for 15 major cities -- a practical guide for romantics, amateur astronomers, and photographers. Other features include a guide to special dates when major planets and stars can be seen near the Moon in the night sky; details of lunar and solar eclipses ; the traditional names of the full moons for every calendar month; dates and brief backgrounds for the major religious holidays associated with the Moon; and a general guide to the extreme high and low tides for the year. One of our special features -- not found elsewhere -- is a unique graphic chart showing the relative amounts of moonlight for every day of the year.

The Moon Almanac is associated with The Moon Calendar, available from The Experiment Publishing in a handy card-sized printed format.
