Shortly before his death in December 2012, Sir Patrick Moore began the annual task of planning the fifty-second consecutive Yearbook of Astronomy with his friend and colleague Dr John Mason. This special 2014 edition therefore serves as a fitting tribute to the life and work of a man who worked on this unique reference book for over half a century. The 2014 Yearbook contains all of the usual articles that no stargazer should be without: an authoritative collection of charts and astronomical data, articles by some of the world's leading astronomers, and a month-by-month guide to events to look out for over the coming year - from planets and eclipses, to comets, meteors, nebulae and phases of the Moon. But it also includes a special section of articles devoted to the memory of Sir Patrick himself. Written by notable contributors and Yearbook authors past and present, these articles recall Sir Patrick's many contributions to astronomy, as well as anecdotes and personal memoires of this remarkable man. 'A first-rate curtain raiser for a year that offers a stream of astronomical treats' Observer Science Books of the Year
