It's intended for viewing the night sky primarily with the naked eye or binoculars. This portable book is a down-to-earth guide for finding astronomical features in the Northern Hemisphere without complicated sky maps.

Organized chronologically from January to December, astronomers can look up what the night sky holds for any given day during the year.

This practical and easy-to-use reference includes:

Also included are the Moon's phases, dates of planetary and star positions, and specific times to watch.

Studded with historical tidbits and useful tips, The Night Sky Month-by-Month is an excellent introduction to skywatching for amateur astronomers of all ages.
