Stargazing is an activity that lasts a lifetime. There is nothing like the thrill of glimpsing at the rings of Saturn for the first time or seeing, with the aid of a simple pair of binoculars, a fuzzy patch in the sky resolve into a cluster of sparkling stars. The Backyard Stargazer will help you discover new wonders in the night sky, whether you observe from a lounge chair in your backyard, a camp set up far from city lights, or the deck of a ship on a special stargazing cruise.
Written in a conversational, accessible style, The Backyard Stargazer is a down to earth guide to observing the night and daytime sky without having to invest in a lot of equipment.
You will discover:
Includes 46 easy projects for planet watching, moon viewing, and constellation spotting!
