A completely revised and redesigned new edition of this popular introduction to the night sky. In his characteristically entertaining and informative style, Sir Patrick introduces the wonders of the night sky to absolute beginners. The Moon, the planets, the Sun and the stars are explained in non-technical language, and then the constellations are introduced, with the help of star maps and tables.The four main chapters in the Philip's Guide to the Night Sky are devoted to what's on view in each season of the year. The information is appropriate for observers in Britain and Ireland, northern Europe, northern United States and Canada; it will also be helpful a little outside these latitudes. Using prominent patterns, such as the Plough and Orion, Sir Patrick teaches the reader to 'star-hop' from constellation to constellation, thus learning to navigate the night sky. Star maps and photographs illustrate and clarify what will be on view.Philip's Guide to the Night Sky is an ideal introduction to stargazing, suitable for all ages and with no need for anything more technical than the naked eye.Main map scale:
