About this book

This fully updated 2013 edition of this essential guide features a range of specially commissioned articles by some of the world's top astronomers, an authoritative collection of charts and astronomical data, and a special picture section featuring some of the most important astronomical events of the year. It also includes a month-by-month guide to events in the coming year: planets, eclipses, comets, meteors, nebulae and phases of the moon.

"A first-rate curtain raiser for a year that offers a stream of astronomical treats"
- Observer, Science Books of the Year

"'The sort of book that beggars the reviewer's powers of expression [...] These charts are masterpieces of clarity and detail [...] Indispensable"
- Astronomy & Space
