About this book

Explore the night skies with this beautiful illustrated monthly guide to the stars and planets. This large-format almanac allows you to step outside and track the planets, locate the Milky Way, recognise the constellations of the zodiac and watch meteor showers. Stargazers' Almanac 2015 is a beautiful month-by-month guide to the night skies. It's designed specifically for naked-eye astronomy – no telescope required! – making it ideal for beginners, children and backyard astronomers. It has become a popular Christmas gift – and one which lasts the whole year round. Each monthly chart features two views of the night sky looking north and south, and a visual guide to the phases of the moon and the movements of the planets. The notes include fascinating insights into the science, history, folklore and myths of the stars and planets.
