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: â
¢ digitally re-drawn skyviews, sky charts and map of the surface of
the Moon â ¢ a table of planet positions up to 2017
