Exploring the Starry Sky is the perfect guide for anyone interested in stargazing for the first time. With large, colourful, and easy-to-use star maps, it contains simple directions for finding all of the major stars and constellations visible from the northern hemisphere. For each season, two star charts show all the major sights that can be seen from suburban or rural locations. For those who already have binoculars or a small telescope, more detailed maps spotlight special regions of interest. Additional sections show where the planets are from now until 2006, and when to look for meteor showers, plus dates and places of upcoming eclipses of the Sun and Moon. Fun and easy to use, Exploring the Starry Sky is an enjoyable introduction to sky-watching for every beginner.
