About this book

More than 60 star charts act as a comprehensive guide to the night sky month-by-month and season-by-season, as different stars and constellations come and go. Spectacular images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope are among the highlights of the full-colour photographs. Included is a planisphere of the Northern sky which provides an invaluable tool for checking the stars and constellations visible every hour of every night of the year. Backing up visual observations of the night sky, information sections provide essential reading to help understand the nature of stars and galaxies and what makes the Universe tick.
