Synopsis

The ideal resource for beginning sky watchers in 2018.

The night sky is always an amazing sight but it's a thrill when you can locate stars or catch sight of a meteor. With 2018 Guide to the Night Sky, amateur astronomers can view the sky over the course of the year and not miss a thing. It is also a compact and comprehensive introduction to astronomy.

Using the Guide's charts and maps and following the text, sky watchers can enjoy viewing the night sky with nothing more complicated than a pair of binoculars or the naked eye. With its maps, centered on latitude 40 degrees North, 2018 Guide to the Night Sky will help backyard astronomers in the United States and Canada see how the visible stars change over the year, and ensure that they catch the exciting sky events that occur.

In addition to the month-by-month guides, the Guide includes an introduction to the planets, sky and constellation maps, moon and meteor calendars, and ecliptic charts. An appendix includes a glossary, the Greek alphabet, the constellation genitives, common asterisms, software and internet sources, and much more. The small and light format makes this book the ideal portable reference.

2018 Guide to the Night Sky is a fabulous introduction for new astronomers. It helps them enjoy the thrill of seeing one-time sky events, follow the changes in the night sky and learn about the Milky Way and its resident stars. The background and technical information will serve beginning astronomers well as they develop their skills for a lifetime of sky watching.
