About the Authors
  • Both novice and advanced skywatchers will value this comprehensive and easy-to-use guide to the brilliant and ever-changing sights of the southern sky by night. Readers are introduced to the many and varied objects in the sky and their movements and changing appearances, as well as the ancient myths and legends entwined around the groupings of stars. Featured in this book are two groups of sky charts, designed so that readers can move easily between them. The 24 skyviews show the appearance of the whole night sky every two weeks (or at each hour of sidereal time). The 20 sky charts show particular areas of the night sky in detail and are accompanied by explanatory text. This new edition also features: • digitally re-drawn skyviews, sky charts and map of the surface of the Moon • a table of planet positions up to 2017

    • Clear easy-to-read star maps to help you explore the night sky
    • Lucid text to introduce the fundamentals of naked-eye astronomy
    • Tables of sky sights through until 2015
