English | ISBN: 1461406099 | 2011 | PDF | 423 pages | 14.1 MB
Celestial Delights is the essential "TV Guide" for the sky. Through extensive graphics integrated with an eight - year - long calendar of sky events, it provides a look at "don`t miss" sky events, mostly for naked - eye and binocular observing. It is organized by ease of observation – lunar phases and the brighter planets come first, with solar eclipses, the aurora, and comets coming later.
This third edition also includes a hefty dose of sky lore, astronomical history, and clear overviews of current science. It provides a handy reference to upcoming naked - eye events, with information broken out in clear and simple diagrams and tables that are cross - referenced against a detailed almanac for each year covered. This book puts a variety of information all in one place, presents it in a friendly way that does not require prior in - depth astronomical knowledge, and provides the context and historical background for understanding events that astronomy software or web sites lack.
