Description

A guide to the constellations of the northern skies throughout the year, this book provides a useful introduction to star-spotting. Included is an explanation of the concept of a constellation; a discussion of the stars that we see as Earth makes its annual journey along its orbit; a look at different types of stars; and advice on stargazing. Fifty-four constellations are illustrated, showing their boundaries, shape, stars and deep-space objects, and explanatory text provides a quick tour of each part of the sky, pointing out objects of interest.show more
