About this book

A complete guide for the amateur astronomer living in an urban or suburban center... The Urban Astronomer.

Viewing the sky from an urban location can be just as fun and educational - if you know how to go about it. The Urban Astronomer shows amateur and more advanced astronomers the best ways and times to observe celestial objects from a city or suburban environment.
