The Night Sky Companion is a comprehensive guide to what can be explored in the heavens on a nightly basis. Designed to appeal to readers at all skill levels and involvement, it provides a digest for sky watchers interested in all-in-one-place information that includes history, current events, and of course interesting objects to be observed on any given day. It provides unaided eye observers an opportunity to view many objects or events as well as learn about their history, science and how just "looking up" can be rewarding. It is richly illustrated with finder maps and photographs.

From the Back Cover:

The The Night Sky Companion is far more than just an observing guide. It is a year’s journey into the science and facts of astronomy and space travel, along with some of its history and the and the men and women who made it. If you’re a sky watcher equipped with any kind of astronomical telescope, binoculars, or even just your eyes, you are sure to find this book absolutely fascinating.

Taking a day-by-day look at the sky over the course of the whole year, Tammy Plotner has assembled a digest to appeal to all astronomers and would-be astronomers. Turn these pages and you’ll find observing recommendations – including how to locate the object you’re looking for – along with a wealth of information touching on every aspect of your observation.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a meteor shower, nebula, double star, variable star, lunar crater, or even the Sun: if it’s an interesting feature of the 2008 – 2009 observing year, you'll find it here!
