The essential month-by-month guide to the night sky in the year
2005, together with a starfinder to make skywatching even easier.
The booklet features twelve monthly charts showing the night sky
objects visible above the horizon late in the evening, whilst notes
opposite each chart describe the visibility of the planets and the
phases of the moon. This year's guide includes information on
sunset, sunrise and nautical twilight times, in addition to a table
highlighting the principal meteor showers in 2005, and notes on
other important events in the astronomical calendar. The starfinder
or planisphere is a handy device which can tell you the positions
of the stars at any time, on any day of any year. It works in a
very simple way: just dial in the date and time by rotating the
inner plastic disk, the time, until it lines up with the relevant
month and day of the year calibrated on the outer ring. The portion
of sky shown on the starfinder will show the arrangement of the
stars above you. An essential piece of kit for any skywatcher.
