About this book

A first-time skywatcher's guide from bright new talent, BBC Blue Peter astronomer, Anton Vamplew. Working at the planetarium in Greenwich, Anton has met hundreds of enthusiastic but utterly bemused beginners of all ages, and has made sense of the night sky for them. In this book he introduces the night sky just as if he were by your side, pointing everything out. And contrary to popular belief, you don't need any expensive equipment to start skygazing. Anton takes you through all the things you can discover with just the naked eye.

The book is suitable for use in the northern and southern hemispheres - two sections give equal coverage to where to start and what you can see wherever you are in the world, whenever.
