A detailed schedule of celestial phenomena.
The Night Sky Month-by-Month is like having a knowledgeable, friendly astronomer standing right next to you and pointing out the planets and constellations every night of the year. It's intended for viewing the night sky primarily with the naked eye or binoculars. This portable book is a down-to-earth guide for finding astronomical features in the Northern Hemisphere without complicated sky maps.
Organized chronologically from January to December, astronomers can look up what the night sky holds for any given day during the year.
This practical and easy-to-use reference includes:
Comprehensive Lunar schedule for the entire year
Dates of planetary and star positions
Simple sky maps identify planets, and constellations
Times, dates and locations of eclipses
Finding and identifying constellations
Monthly update of major astronomical events.
A simple color photo of the night sky shows which direction to face and where to look for the planets Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. Star maps show where to find a multitude of constellations quickly and accurately.
Also included are the Moon's phases, dates of planetary and star positions, and specific times to watch.
Studded with historical tidbits and useful tips, The Night Sky Month-by-Month is an excellent introduction to skywatching for amateur astronomers of all ages.
