ESO Calendar 2024 Now Available
26 September 2023
This year’s cover shows a spectacular view of the orange and pink clouds that make up what remains after the explosive death of a massive star — the Vela supernova remnant.
As for the internal pages, the calendar opens with January’s image of the Lupus 3 star-forming region, and concludes with December’s picture of the setting Sun in the Atacama Desert, painting the sky with beautiful hues of pink, orange, purple, blue, and yellow. Throughout the months in between, you'll encounter a breath-taking array of pictures, including May’s spectacular image of Jupiter and October’s night-time view of the construction site of ESO's Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) at Cerro Armazones, against a backdrop of starry brilliance.
The calendar measures 48 x 36 centimetres and it is delivered in a cardboard box. It can be purchased for 9.50 EUR in the ESOshop, but supply is limited, so we recommend placing your order as soon as possible or passing by our shop inside the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre.
