Stargazers' Almanac 2013

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 2013 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.

This year there are feature articles on Britain's newest dark-sky reserves – the best places in the UK for stargazing – and on Edwin Powell Hubble, who died 60 years ago.

Stargazers' Almanac 2013 also features:
– Advice on how to navigate the night sky
– Overhead reference map of the sky
– Reference plan of constellations
– Glossary of constellations and Latin names
– Glossary of brightness of stars
– Guide to the signs of the zodiac and how they relate to the stars
– Loop and eyelet for easy wall hanging; presented in a sturdy cardboard gift envelope
