If you have ever watched shooting stars graze the sky or wondered about a particularly bright point of light near the horizon, then this is the book for you. A Skywatcher's Year is the authoritative guide to visible bodies in the night sky throughout the year. Through fifty-two essays, Jeff Kanipe guides you to celestial events and phenomena that occur or are visible with the naked eye and binoculars for each week of the year. He acquaints you not only with up-to-date astronomical information on stars, nebulae, meteors, the Milky Way, and galaxies, but also conveys the beauty and wonder of the night sky. Covering both the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere, A Skywatcher's Year helps readers find prominent stars and constellations, bright star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies, and explains how and when to observe prominent annual meteor showers. Kanipe also examines the most frequently-observed celestial body, the Moon, and the intriguing lore surrounding it. A rich and jargon-free look at the sky through the four seasons, this engaging book will give new dimensions to backyard star-gazing.

Book Description:

Through 52 essays, Skywatcher's Year guides readers to celestial events that occur or are visible with the naked eye and binoculars. Information rich, yet jargon free, this guide helps find prominent stars and constellations, bright star clusters and galaxies, and the prominent meteor showers. Also covered are the Moon, tides, and the northern lights. Information is given on planets through to 2010, and the eclipse planner runs to 2025. Skywatcher's Year demands little more than a love of the natural sky and occasional access to binoculars or a small telescope.
