The Philip's Pocket Star Atlas is a highly practical atlas in a compact format for use out of doors. It contains a series of maps showing the entire night sky, as well as a mass of useful astronomical data. It is suitable for use anywhere in the world. This popular atlas is now in its fourth edition, for which it has been revised, updated and expanded. It presents the sky in a series of 16 maps, which allow stars down to magnitude 5.5 to be plotted. This means that all stars visible to the naked eye in semi-rural conditions are now shown. Accompanying the star maps is a brief round-up of the basics of astronomy, including celestial coordinates, stars and their classification, magnitudes, a map of the Moon, the movements of the Sun and the Moon, eclipses and deep sky objects. Clear and colourful diagrams help to explain these sometimes complicated concepts.; Following the maps is a series of tables packed with useful practical information, such as the position, brightness and size of the deep sky objects marked on the maps; dates of forthcoming solar and lunar eclipses; dates for when best to observe Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn (the planets visible to the naked eye); and
