Summary

Summary

The brand new edition of this favorite star watchers' handbook has all of its maps, tables, and charts updated to chronicle celestial events throughout the first decade of the twenty-first century. The book provides month-by-month sky maps for both the northern and southern hemispheres. An astronomical calendar tracks all of the solar system's planets, and a set of tables shows all phases of the Moon up to the year 2010. Gatefold front and back covers open to show solar and lunar eclipses for the same ten-year period. A 22-page illustrated A-to-Z dictionary describes major celestial objects and events. The book features 175 sky maps, charts, and diagrams, plus 30 dramatic full-color photos.
