Can you spot the Big Dipper in the night sky? Or Orion's Belt? Or Cassiopeia? Even in cities, and without the aid of a telescope, these are a few of the easier constellations to find. In fact, a great deal can be seen in the night sky with the naked eye - if you know what you're looking for. Night Sky presents 200 colour photographs of stunning nocturnal vistas all visible to the naked eye. From the majesty of the Northern Lights (Aurora borealis) as seen from Norway or Canada, and the Southern Lights (Aurora australis) as seen from Australia, to seeing the clarity of the Milky Way over an Italian forest, from witnessing a lunar eclipse in Indonesia to charting the course of the International Space Station across the Indian night, and from seeing a Geminid meteor shower in New Mexico to recognizing the Great Bear (Ursa Major) constellation over New England, the book is a feast of nocturnal delights. Where necessary, additional inset photographs indicate the formation of a constellation. Presented in a landscape format and with 200 outstanding colour photographs supported by fascinating captions, Night Sky is a stunning collection of images.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Not just about stars and planets and distant galaxies and the infinitude of space, Night Sky is also about the earthly landscapes from which such visions can be seen. You'll do well to find many more arresting images than these.' -- Marcus Berkmann * Daily Mail *

“Gob-smackingly beautiful”

Beautiful and breath-taking. Stunning, stunning photos that I could just look at for hours, along with brief but succinct paragraphs of science ed. masquerading as simple descriptions of the images.
