It is with mixed feelings that we impose restrictions on the copying of our monthly Sky Calendar and Evening Skies. Our original intent in creating the Sky Calendar was to make an easy-to-follow guide to the night sky and distribute it as widely as possible. We wanted everyone to enjoy the sky as much as we do and believed the Sky Calendar would excite people's interest.
Although our "share the sky" philosophy is still foremost, it is now absolutely necessary that we obtain a fair return for all uses of the Sky Calendar / Evening Skies and have set the following policies:
1. Any non-profit, educational institution or group has permission to duplicate up to four issues per calendar year for educational use provided it:
3. Blocks from the Sky Calendar may be excerpted for publication provided the source (Abrams Planetarium) is clearly indicated and subscription information is fully stated (both address and price).
4. Please send us a copy of any issue of your publication in which our Sky Calendar or Evening Skies is reproduced or excerpted.
5. These policies are effective with the October 1998 issue of Sky Calendar and are subject to change.
We ask for your cooperation in following these reprint guidelines. The long term quality of the Sky Calendar depends both on your interest, as a Skywatcher, and the Sky Calendar's ability to produce income. We appreciate your support. If you have questions on these policies or potential uses not covered here, please contact the Abrams Planetarium office.
