CalendarStars 2017 is ready!

The brand new TNG calendar for year 2017 is ready.

Your telescope is always looking at distant celestial bodies from its vantage point of view of the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory on the top of the La Palma Island. Atlantic Ocean.

Looking afar is a time travel, at the speed of light. We measure other planetary system orbits and the colors of faraway galaxies. And we always come back to you, back to your future.

In this way, the observers can use their data or simply enjoy the nice photographs we present here. And there is no present like the time.

Thus we, the whole staff of the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo, bringing back comets and galaxies for you, wish you all a wonderful, future 2017.

Emilio Molinari, Director
