9780007103614: How to Identify the Night Sky

In this book, which forms part of Collins Natural History's "How to Identify" series, the night sky is divided into easy-to-follow sections. Once you can navigate your way around then it will be easy to identify what is visible in the sky on any given night. Designed for the beginner and for those who want to find out more, this text covers everything that can be seen with the naked eye and binoculars, as well as what is visible using a small telescope. There are sections on how to observe and understand the objects that comprise the night sky, the moon, the movements of the stars and planets throughout the year and astronomical events. The constellations are given a comprehensive treatment. For each one there is a chart, a photograph, a description of its features and history, the best dates and times of visibility, the mythological representation and a list of interesting objects.
