I'm looking for an astronomy calendar I can incorporate into my calendar app (the Calendar app on macOS). I've poked around for a few that I found (.ics) on the Internet but I'm suspicious of accuracy. A bonus would be alerts in advance, like: Winter Solstice tomorrow at hh:mm in my local time zone.

 

Is there a way to generate events from TheSkyX or SkySafari or other app?

I agree, this would be a good thing, I know these .ics calendars exist for sports teams, why not one for astronomy!

I have an astronomy iCal calendar that I've used for several years.  I don't even recall how I found it.

 

https://cantonbecker...es/astrocal.ics

 

It has Moon phases, meteor showers, conjunctions, oppositions, interesting pairings, etc.

Here is the description of the calendar: https://cantonbecker...nomy-calendar/ 

 

He says it works with Google Calendar as well.

 

Highly worth trying.
